Spring CD project

Dear Families of CCS

Introducing plans for the Spring CD project The Music Within Volume 2 Great Hymns of Faith and other Favourites!

We plan D.V. to perform a number of beautiful old hymns, some of which are intertwined with newer Praise and Worship songs along withfull orchestra and concert pianist to be recorded the final week of April and culminating with a grand finale concert on Saturday evening, May 1, 2010 (Ebenezer on Dynes Road) for which we will charge admission.

Please note the following:

· This opportunity is open to all students in grades 3 – 8 with preference given to senior students since it will be their final chance to enjoy a musical venture like this. But they will be submitted to an audition since I would like to limit this group to approximately 35 students or less.

· To streamline this process, your child cannot be auditioned without receipt of parental consent and commitment. Please do so by replying to this e-mail or phoning me so I can keep record of it.

· Grade 1 & 2 (and Little Treasures Kindergarten if they agree) will be featured in a separate, exclusive performance of a delightful hymn, Wonderful Words of Life.

· Rehearsals will be an hour or an hour and half in length on Thursday afternoons at school. They will begin with a snack and outdoor break and begin rehearsal at 3pm sharp. Pickup from school will be at 4:30 and a choir member list will be made available to assist with carpooling.

· In April, AFTER our Easter program (Thursday, April 1) we will arrange to have a number of rehearsals in mass with the orchestra and recording artists/community choir etc…

You may have noted the bulletin announcement wherein we have solicited the participation of an adult community choir. It is our sincere desire to make this a community effort including those willing and able from the alumni, staff, parents AND grandparents of this school. Please consider this carefully and recognize that while it is a wonderful opportunity to sychronize voice and musical talents, it will require a thoughtful commitment of your time and resources.

I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
