With 2020 well underway, we are busy getting ready for some upcoming performances and competition in April.
The first event of the new year was our Boston Pizza Celebrity Server fundraiser on January 27. What a huge success the fundraiser was! And what fun too! We are grateful to Boston Pizza for hosting us, to the customers who cheered us on and to our own members who brought guests. We send a very special shout out to the ladies from Greater Kingston Chorus who came out as well. We are ever grateful to you for your undaunted support, and we really enjoyed singing “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” with you. We certainly did feel the love, thank you!
Our chorus thrives on great teamwork and the team came together for the Boston Pizza event. But a special extra nod of thanks must be given to our Fundraising Chairperson, Jenny Omdal. She hit the ball right out of the park on this event! Thank you, Jenny.
We are excited to be a part of a lovely Valentine’s dinner and evening of song with the fine gentlemen of A Cappella Quinte on February 14. This has been a longstanding 'date' with our two choruses and we are once again looking forward to the festivities. To learn more about the men’s chorus, visit their website.
As we move just past the half-way point of winter, we are reminded of how important it is to eat healthy, exercise, laugh and play, and to seek out activities to lift us over any winter blues that may set in. Listening to music and singing are two of those activities that are scientifically proven to help beat the blues. When we sing, we release endorphins that can help ease stress and even give one a sense of euphoria. So sing loud, sing proud, smile and remember… Spring is on its way!
Our big news this edition is a brand spanking new website! We are excited and proud of our new chorus website home, and we hope to attract many women in our area to explore our pages to learn more about us and to ultimately entice them to come out to our open practices Monday evenings. Please take the time to check it out www.bayofquintechorus.com
As we move into December we will wrap up the fun of singing Christmas carols with our Christmas Chorus guests. They have been sensational and we hope they choose to stay on with us as full members.
We will take our break starting December 9 with a big Christmas party dinner together before taking the time off to spend it with family and friends. We will start up regular practices again on January 6. Wow! It’s hard to believe that 2020 is just around the corner!
To all our sisters in song, “Weeee wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year” Love and light wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a New Year filled with much song, laughter and joyful moments for all!
