From the Prez

Hello fellow Barbershoppers. Wow what a rehearsal on 3 March. Great to see those type of numbers attending and learning. We need to continue that great attendance so we will be ready for our upcoming performances: 24 April Panoply, possible performances in May, and our show in June, July and August. If you have any questions about upcoming events, please see Jim Savage. With the cold and flu season upon us there is a good article in the Harmonizer about singers and sore throats. Lastly please take some time at home going over your sheet music and learning tracks. We purchase those items to assist in the learning process, they are a great tool. Hope to see everyone at all rehearsals.
