Choir Workshop. I hope you are as excited as I am about the workshop on Saturday, Jan. 21. Bro. Eric Rea will cover plenty of techniques to make us fabulous. Please plan on:
- Attending Saturation Saturday – 9:45 am in Fellowship Hall
- Attending the choir workshop – 12:30 pm in youth room.
- Giving a love offering to Bro. Rea
Turning in music. You may have noticed that your folder is emptier than before. And, your slots down in the baptistery room have been sorted out. My mom spent hours over the past few weeks sorting—once again—through all the music AND all your folders to find missing music.
I’m desperately trying to systematize the music tracking. It’s crazy though… the music sure makes that difficult! If only we didn’t have to deal with all this sheet music, the music ministry would be easy. We either sing from the hymnal, sing choir specials from memory, or systematize our music better.
Much of our long-term stability depends on staying organized. It’s no secret how much music costs. It is printed on the sheets. Say, $1.50 or $2 per song. If you lose one or two pieces of music here and there, spread that cost over 35 choir members and it costs a lot of money for disorganization.
So, there’s a new “MISSING” column on the spreadsheet. I know, I know… it was the last guy’s fault. And he was probably a tenor. I believe it. If your number is listed, please resolve:
- Turn in music, or
- Let us know what happened (looked everywhere and it’s lost, dog ate it, a tenor stole it, a tenor ate it, etc.)
Thank you for your great work. I love this choir!
