* CHANGE IN THE SENIOR BOY CHORISTERS SCHEDULE: Everyone has been working very hard and I know you are all very busy. To help a little, the Lunch and Sunday afternoon Rehearsal that would have taken place on October 26 is cancelled. I hope this helps a little!

*SAVE THE DATE: CHOIR PARENTS COFFEE, Friday morning 24 October from 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. in the Church Reception Room……an informal gathering for parents for the pleasure of just being together, catching up and lovely conversation. An invitation was sent out this week. Let PA know if you did not receive one. Don’t forget to RSVP.

*SAVE THE DATES: The long anticipated dates of the Summer Choir Tour to France have been determined. Thank you for your patience and willingness to complete all the surveys. Detailed information will be available soon: June 20-29

*TUESDAY JUNIOR EVENSONG ROTA: Parents, there is now a “rota” or schedule of who is doing what at Evensong this year. It is attached to this newsletter and posted on the bulletin board outside the Music Room. It is offered in an attempt to give all the choristers a chance at all the jobs that go into producing Evensong as well as to let you know in advance when your choristers might be reading or caring the cross.
