Greetings this morning after the GCS AUCTION!
I hope everyone is well, safe and sound after a passionate day of winter weather and excitement in the evening.

Please join me in a big thank you to Amee Shah, Andy Carrigan and Micaela Macagnone for offering their talents and skills in photography and photo shop to create and prepare our annual choir portraits. I am attaching the photos to this document and on the website post so you can down load them. What an amazing and talented roster of artists have been captured in these photos!

our newest Senior Chorister who gave a brilliant audition on Wednesday! I can’t wait to hear everyone else! Please contact me directly to schedule an appointment.
Old Juniors it is time for your senior Auditions.
After the Presidents Day Weekend Holiday please talk with Dr. A. to set a time.
The Following Choristers should take Senior Auditions this term:
Duncan Longley
Marcus Dawkins
Julia De Moura Braine
Cindy Barbosa
Emily Lopez
Rania Challita
Ginger McCoy
Nylah Mulzac

We hope to complete them all by Mother’s Day, our traditional day to elevate new Senior Choristers!

The Annual Concert Committee is hard at work preparing for the beautiful reception that follows that concert on 24 April. That has traditionally been one of our three big fund raising events for the Choir Special Projects Fund.
In additional to aiding the cost of Concert Tours in the summer this fund helps support many of our special opportunities that are beyond the annual operating budget.
The growth of the fund impacts everyone’s choir experience!

SNOW and Winter Weather! watch the weather reports, take no chances with personal safety. We follow the schedule of GCS. Should they call a snow day or schedule change, we will follow that. As I know things I’ll post them and send out email.
