* 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!

* CHOIR PARENTS COFFEE, our first Choir Parents Coffee took place this morning. It was great! We will attempt one or two more of these throughout the year. A time just to see one another and chat with no agenda, only to have fun and social time. Thank you to Anne Zaccaro,
Vicky Hurley, and Shannon Cave for getting us organized and making it so lovely.
Liverpool cathedal choir - all and staff

*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 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.
