Thursday’s Thoughts from Will 09.08.2022

We had a great orchestra rehearsal last night and made it through all but 2 songs for Christmas. We’re gonna be in great shape. Next week our choir meets for rehearsal and some auditions for those who’ve not auditioned yet for solos and/or Praise Team.

Praise Team/Solo Auditions September 14th at 7:30.
Solo Parts of songs in Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, Messiah, and Wisemen Still Seek Him

Outfits: If you haven’t been fitted for your shirt ladies, let Jana know so we can take care of that for you. You’ll need to find/ purchase solid black pants that are long enough to touch the tops of your black closed-toed shoes. We need to place our order in coming weeks. Men, we need your shirt size (neck size and arm length). Men you’ll also receive a maroon tie. You need to find solid black pants as well.
Cost: $40 for ladies tops; $50 for men’s shirt and tie. We are exploring an online way to pay, but for the meantime, cash or check is the way to go. You can actually drop your payment in the offering box at the church with the memo filled out choir/orchestra outfit or give your payment to me or Jana.
