Hi everyone,

It is almost summer and I think we are all looking forward to some sun and warm weather.  We are Moving On which requires looking at ourselves as we were and realizing who we are now.  What I see is a very dedicated and resourceful group of women ready to go the extra mile to keep us engaged and ready to find meaning and fun in this” between time.” 

Lots of activities and programming ideas have been floating around and I hope we will use many of them.  Our board meeting will be a good time to discuss so keep them coming.

This coming Thursday we will focus on Will the Circle and It don’t mean a thing.  Lots of work is needed on both of these songs. Breakout rooms will work for both songs.

If you are planning to be a part of our “chorus singing audio/video” look for new guide lines that will be out soon.  Our task force has been working to clarify the process.  The audio tapes ( I’ve only received three so far) must be made singing against the lead tapes for lions, Sway or the video to New Orleans. All on our website.  It is a work in progress for sure.  And for those of you who aren’t planning to be in on this project, you won’t be left out in the final product.  We’ll get you recognized in some way so don’t worry.

FYI.  Sweet Adelines and other webinars have been discussing the issues surrounding the return to live chorus rehearsals.  Most experts feel that a vaccine will need to be in place before large chorus groups can meet. However, smaller, outdoor gatherings of 4 people with all the precautions in place held later this summer are up for discussion. 

Meanwhile,  it was great to have Vicky as our guest last week and I think it is a wonderful idea to invite a friend.  

And here’s an idea.  Make a video of you singing along with a favorite song not in our repertoire .  Have fun, make it funny and lighthearted .  It will be a great opportunity to try the video apps you have.  Maybe we can put one a week up on the website.  If you don’t have the ability to video, you can still enjoy watching your chorus friends sing for you. 

And don’t forget Dancin Queen.  Think of it as your Pilates for the day.

See you all Thursday.  

Alice
