From the Librarian

Sorry for taking the President’s Corner to put on my librarian hat. I will send out a list of music you should have in your 2020 Music book. When this list comes out, I will need everyone to carefully look through your music book and verify you have those songs list. At the same time I need you to pull out any music not on the list which is marked Rocket City Chorus. I am at that time frame I am trying to clean up my dining room table so my wife can utilize it for dining and not music storage. One of the biggest cost drivers for our Chapter is buying new music. It is not an issue if we have to purchase music to add because of new folks in our ranks that is a good thing. Now that we have finished up Singing Valentine’s and we will be complete with The National Anthem for the Havoc, we need to focus on learning the words for our 2020 show songs. Please spend some time at home reviewing those new songs. Hope to see everyone next week.
- Thanks, John
