April 21 Seasons Choir

I am right now singing with my buddies in the Seasons Choir. We are singing lots of good stuff - I'll tell you all about our performance songs when we pick them from all the songs we're trying out.
There are about 20 of us again - we come and go. A few people have gotten sick or had a family emergency and had to drop out, but we will still be a block of ladies singing our little hearts out.
Our concert will be May 10, at the Christ Church United Methodist, the same place we've been holding the concerts.
We are trying this year to have an extra rehearsal per week at one of the singers' houses. I hope that helps me - the one of not much memory power. They told me today that at some point I would have to quit using the 'Chemo Brain' excuse. HMMMM.
We are singing: Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child; Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme; I'm gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter; Nigra Sum (LATIN! -- EEK!); American Lullaby; Sing a Song of Six Pence; and River in Judea -- this last one with both of the other choirs. Mrs. Kersey is letting us sing so many songs because we all argued for our favorites. She reminded us that at the first concert, we only sang 3 songs! The ones we won't sing this time are One Minute Madrigal and Kyrie (by Imant Raminsh and is the most gorgeous arrangement) We will probably sing the Kyrie at the Holiday concert.
We have only two weeks left before the concert, so not enough rehearsals for me. MUST. GO. PRACTICE. NOW.
Please, please, come hear us sing -- Sat. eve. May 10 at 7:00 at 655 N. Craycroft - just north of 5th Street on the west side of Craycroft. Bring friends - it's free if you don't care to make a donation. Bring friends who are women who would like to sing for fun - no auditions - very casual, and fun. Did I mention we have a good time?
Hey - also brings friends who are male or female and are 13 - 20 (ish?) and would like to sing in the other awesome choirs! They need new voices all the time, also. Mrs. Kersey Rocks!
Later Gator. Love ya mean it - I'm going to catch up on this blog - nothing much has been happening. Patty : ) : )
