Season 16, Changing Hearts
Issue #46 - QMC Quickie for 01/07/18
A positive performance-based community for gay/bisexual men/transmen and their allies in South Central Indiana. We foster talent, fellowship, pride, and understanding through excellence in vocal music. Founded in 2002.
Things happening this week! We've considerably condensed the Quickie and hope to keep it short. Use the Shortcut section below for more info.
Cabaret and Cabernet, Quarryland's fundraiser:
Please note change of date: Sunday, March 4, 2018, Place and Time TBA.
If you'd like to perform for the Cabaret and Cabernet, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with song title(s) and length(s) of songs you'd like to perform and if you'll be performing with someone else or solo.
You may also consider donating an item for the silent auction. Here are some ideas from the last Cabaret and Cabernet fundraiser on March 2, 2017.
Past rehearsal notes, upcoming rehearsal prep, performance information (attire, call-time, performance order), rehearsal reminders. Link to Chorus Connection.
NEXT REHEARSAL: Monday, January 8, 2018, 7-9:30pm. AUDITIONS are also January 8, 2018, 6:30-7pm, so please invite people - we really need to add some more voices.
This week Barry says:
The holidays and winter break behind us it's time to start a new - more fun, more learning, more engaging, and souls to touch. I'm very excited to be back with everyone and just a little nervous as well. Going into this prep it's been a little difficult for me to settle on stuff I want to do because there are so many things I'd like to revisit and so many things I'd always wanted to do but we never had the opportunity to work them into a show. Nevertheless, here we go. We do have a few little performances between now and the April concert hopefully including a trip to Evansville, but then Spencer Pride at the beginning of June, will be my final bow as AD.
For those of you who might not have sang with us for a while, please do come home to your family. I'd love to see as many of you as possible up on stage when I cut off that last note of this chapter of my life. I know others would also love to have you sitting next to them in rehearsals as well. If it's any help there will be a number of pieces we've done in the past and we are working to make rehearsal tapes for most of the pieces. This chorus has meant so much to people over the years so go ahead and invite someone else to join you as well. It could be just what that person is needing.
If you have sung with us recently or in the past, please look back into you closet or look on your corner table and locate all of the music you have to turn back in on Monday.
Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow at 7:00-9:30.
If you are unable to come to rehearsal, contact Chorus Manager, Luiz Lopes in advance so that he may relay the information to Barry or Mitch before rehearsal starts. Please contact Luiz also in case you have any items of interest for the Quickie.
Helpful hints, words of encouragement, and notes from the Board - all geared toward the success of the chorus. And the donate button is always wanting you to give it a go - or copy the URL and share it with a friend/colleague.
