Hello all,

Last year we all gathered for a “Summer Sizzler” and enjoyed a wonderful social time connecting with one another, laughing, celebrating, and enjoying the amazing family of Region 16. We are missing all of you and so would like to announce that we will be hosting a FALL FLING via ZOOM on Wednesday, October 27 at 7:00 pm for everyone in our region.

We realize some of you have your own rehearsals on Wednesdays and hope that you can join in for a change of pace that week so that we can all get together in one virtual space and have some fun together. We really would like to offer a forum where we can share common interests, unmute, talk to one another across choruses, sing a few regional songs, hear from our quartets and choruses, and celebrate YOU! With this in mind, I am requesting the following:
 
  1. A confirmation of your intention to participate. Please RSVP to Joanne Mitchell at jmmitchell72@gmail.com.
  2. Photo(s) of you (Director and Team Leader/President) - together or separate. Please include the correct spelling of your name(s). 
  3. 3-5 favourite photos of your chorus.
  4. Send or resend any virtual choir videos or other videos you have made during COVID.
  5. Video Rhythmic Message: We are calling on your creativity to write and record a celebratory greeting/update from your chorus to the region. You can assign the writing/performance prep to yourself or to the person(s) that will best represent your chorus in this safe but fun way. Please click here for an explanation and instructions for writing and recording your message.

I can’t wait to hear and see your submissions!! I recall one of our choruses jumping into a pool on one of the last greeting submissions… haha! It’s a little cold for that now. This region is full of creative people! Can’t wait! 
 
Your quartets have been contacted separately to submit videos. Please remind them to forward their submissions to Yve Hall at ykmhall@gmail.com.
 
Please have everything requested above consolidated into one folder for your chorus and forwarded NO LATER than Monday, October 18 to Joanne Mitchell at jmmitchell72@gmail.com.
 
If you have any questions or need help, please do not hesitate to contact Joanne Mitchell, Ashaya Babiuk at ashaya.babiuk@gmail.com, or me at erin.howden@rogers.com.
 
We can’t wait to see you all!
 
Love and Harmony,

Erin
