Thank you for your kind words. My good Lady Jane is changing the midi files to MP3s so I can learn my part while doing lawn work. (Women! Can't they drive a lawn mower?) In any case, we will both be cold on arriving at Pennsic. We camp across from the camp of the Debatable Lands and I hear the rehearsals of the a capella choir daily. It is a highlight of my summer. We are looking forward to this and we will serve you well.

Subject: [KWChoir] Keep 'em coming!
Thanks to everyone who has registered for the Pennsic Choir so far!
So far we have 5 sopranos, 7 altos, 2 tenors and 4 basses - only a little over a week after the registration form went online. That's terrific!
Please be aware that I am personally responding to everyone who registers. If you do not receive an email back from me within a day or two after registering (less, if it's on a weekday), then please contact me to verify that your registration went through.
Also thanks to those of you who have indicated that you're willing to sing alternate parts. I prefer to keep everyone on their first choice, but if the numbers are not reasonably balanced I may ask a few people to switch. I will try to make that decision no later than the first week of July. Typically it's altos who are asked to switch to tenor, but only if you've offered - I won't ask those who aren't willing. I may also ask a few sopranos to switch from 1 to 2 or vice-versa where you've indicated that you can do that.
Thanks, and keep the registrations coming. If you have any questions about the music, don't hesitate to give me a holler.
