1. I have attached 3 files: a) the revised schedule for the year, incorporating the dates for the rehearsals with orchestra for the May concert; b) the links to youtube rehearsal aides; c) the text of the CASD Handbook. The Handbook is under revision to include changes to our accompanist and section leaders, but I felt that, with so many new members, I should send out th body of the text, which has not changed. There is important information in it regarding concert attire, member responsibilities, and the like.
2. Last Tuesday we rehearsed Fum, Fum, Fum (F3), Still, Still,Still (S3), Festival Te Deum, Gloria, and Ring Out Ye Crystal Spheres. We are expected to have Crystal Spheres learned prior to our next rehearsal.
3. Please remember to bring all music to each rehearsal.
4. We have had issues with the doors to Sloan being locked on Tuesday evenings, Supposedly this has been addressed, and both the front door and the ramp door should be open until 8:30 pm on Tuesdays. I now have a number to call should the doors be locked when I arrive.
