be attending my first Gulf War this year. I'm used to singing at war, I
like the irony of war harmony, and I'll miss it.
Are there any choral activities at all at Gulf? It would be nice to
get together to sing a few standards that everyone knows, or learn
something new just for fun.
(Erlandr, this doesn't mean I'm volunteering to direct a choir, or even
the altos. Really. Let me get acquainted with the place first! <eg>)

- Erlan here... checking in. I know I've been a bit quite of late, I'm getting back into things bit by bit.
Go for it. I had a choir at Gulf Wars one year.... it was awesome... I've been DYING to get the choral vocal thing happening again down there. I'd love for someone to just grab the bull by the horns... organize it... and advertise it as a Known World Choir Sing a long.... or what ever...
Keep me posted.
Please e mail me off this list if you have any specific questions or concerns or what ever...
I'm here for you all, really, I'm just..... dealing with crap.... as you know and I'm not doing all that great....
I miss you!!

- Theresa was kind enough to ask:"Is anyone planning to attend Gulf Wars this coming March? If so, do we want to get a group together to sing?"Good day, and well met. My name is Christian d'Hiver, and last year I had some success with a "noontime singing" project, in which people showed up on such days as they could, and we read through rounds, madrigals and part-songs, mainly three- or four-part pieces. On a couple of days, we had built up a nice short program, which we then took "on the road" to the food court. But the performance wasn't the important part; just learning and singing were enough to mark each day as a 'success'.I was planning on holding something similar this coming year. If the program for the Pennsic concert were set that far in advance, I'd be happy to include that repertoire in the "noontime singing" music.If someone else wanted to coordinate a choir, per se, with a scheduled performance and sectional rehearsals, pre-distributed repertoire and the like, I'd be happy to support that project and help make it happen. Under those circumstances, I would not want to also run a separate "noontime singing", because I don't think Gulf Wars is large enough to support both efforts; the casual singing would draw people away from the more formal choir.In joy and service,Christian d'Hiver, OLmusic guy, Calontir

If no-one is interested, I would then move ahead with my plans to repeat "noontime singing".
