The latest from Staci & Kristy:

Hello Singers!

We are off and running!   It was so nice to see some friends I have not seen for a long time.  Last Monday we met and sang through all of the music for this season.  My goal was to choose music that was about making music again.  Songs about singing are incorporated into this list along with a few standard folk songs.   I think these will be fun songs to work on and present to an audience.  It feels so good to be making music again!

We are small (but mighty!).  I invite you all to invite friends and family to join us.  Some people are just not quite ready yet to come back and sing but if they are, we sure would like to have them come sing with us on Monday nights.

The KP Civic Center, while a bit of a drive for many of you, is a nice rehearsal space.  Plenty of room and wonderful acoustics!  I also would like to welcome our accompanist, Jeff Bell, to the group.  He and I met for the first time last Monday and I was impressed with his talent and professionalism.  Thank you Jeff for being a part of the group this season.
For this next rehearsal,  I would like to start diving into the music a little deeper.  My plan is to work on How Can I Keep From SingingWhere the Coho Flash Silver, and Wayfaring Stranger more in depth.  If time remains, we will sing through one of our other songs.  All of the recordings have been posted on our PCC website under Member Resources.  http://peninsulacommunitychorus.com/member-resources/
Thank you for being a part of our choir and I look forward to magic moments of making music together.  See you Monday night!

Our first rehearsal for PCC’s Spring 2022 semester starts next Monday, March 21st at 6:30 pm. We will be rehearsing at the Key Peninsula Civic Center located at 17010 S Vaughn Rd NW, Vaughn, WA 98394.

This rehearsal will be all about registration, picking up music and getting reacquainted. As in the past, we will listen to our music and sing along. Please arrive a little early as the registration table can get a little busy. Remember, no auditions are necessary.

This semester Staci has chosen some new music as well as some that we have done in the past. Here is the list:

     New songs:

          How Can I Keep From Singing

          Gonna Lay Down My Burden

          Sing On

          Omnia Sol

     Oldies but goodies:

          Where the Coho Flash Silver

          Old Joe Clark

          Wayfaring Stranger

The cost to participate this semester is $40 plus the cost of music. If you need all of the music, please bring cash or check for $59. If you have the oldies but goodies, the cost will be $50.

As I indicated in the previous email, we will be following CDC and Washington State COVID guidelines as well as best practices used for choral groups. As a result, we will be requiring proof of up-to-date vaccinations (which includes the booster shot) at the time of registration. We will also accept proof of a negative COVID test taken within two days of the rehearsal for those individuals who are not vaccinated. We will continue to monitor the guidelines and will update as needed. The Board is aware that the mask mandate has been lifted, however, masks are still recommended for choral groups. A 3-layer disposable mask or a singing mask will be required for rehearsals at this time.

I hope to see many of you at our first rehearsal next Monday. We will not be imposing our attendance policy this semester. So, if you can’t make the first rehearsal, but want to join us in April we’d love to have you.

One of our members, Kanai Callow, needs transportation from Port Orchard. If you are willing to help, please let me know and I’ll put you in touch with Kanai.

I am so excited to begin this new semester. I know that music has been missing from many of our lives and I hope that joining us will help fill that void. As always, if you no longer wish to receive these emails, please just reply back to me and I will remove you from the list.
