Wardrobe for Season 18
The chorus will be wearing matching vests, black long-sleeve dress shirts (no button-down collars), and tuxedos for major concerts.
We'll have vests at rehearsal so members may figure out the correct size to order. Once you know your size, go tohttps://smile.amazon.com(if you haven't already done so, choose Quarryland as your charity of choice). Then order this vest. Funding assistance is available for those who may need help in purchasing the vest.
For tuxedos - if you already own one, just bring it in for Casey to look over. It will likely be fine. Casey also has tuxedos from Franklin College you may borrow.
Helpful hints, words of encouragement, and notes from the Board.
Board meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month, 7-9pm at First United Church. Wednesday, November 20th is the next board meeting - this coming Wednesday. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. If you are interested in joining the Board, look here for information.
Here's a great way to remind WFIU and WTIU listeners that we have an upcoming concert! Please sign-up to help with their fund drive and make sure you put "Quarryland Men’s Chorus member" in the notes so they announce us on the air while you’re volunteering!
You’re invited to join us for the WFIU and WTIU funding campaigns. Volunteers are needed to answer phones and take pledges when listeners call in their membership support. Taking a pledge is quite simple. If you are able to contribute your time, please claim your preferred date(s) and time(s) on the sign-up page: https://signup.com/go/tSRmGR. A free pass for parking at the Indiana Memorial Union will be provided.
