2003 Endowment Campaign Update From David Nussmann:

Last week we launched the annual campaign to raise funds for the chorus endowment. Our official campaign will conclude this year on May 6. All who contribute before this point will be acknowledged in an insert into the Beethoven program.

The endowment was founded by Chorus members to show their support for the future of the Chorus. Last year a record 63 Chorus members contributed to the endowment - that's about one third of the Chorus. This year we are hoping to push that percentage higher. It would be great to get over 50% participation this year, our 55th birthday!! Donations of ALL sizes count towards this goal.

Donation envelopes are available on the outside table. You can mail these envelopes, or give them to Susan Scarrow, David Nussmann or Jonathan Vaughan.

Re-audition Cuts

As you read in the Friday Chronicles this week, re-auditions are being done a bit differently this year. Half the Chorus will be heard this year, including those wishing to be newly considered for Messiah, and those wishing to switch sections. Why you are re-auditioning will determine what music you need to prepare..(please see back of this sheet)

Messiah auditioners: Messiah cuts (see below)

Section changers: bring a prepared song and music for an accompanist

All others: Beethoven 9 cuts (see below)
