Chorus Christmas Parties - Save the Date!

Once again this year we will be having Chorus Parties between the Sunday Christmas Shows. We will go to a restaurant for the Pops Party, and to Ken Hansen's house for our "on the road" Messiah party. Full details next week: bring your checkbook so you can make your Pops party ticket then!

Christmas Octets Workshop!!

Thanks to all who have volunteered to help with these, and thanks to Sally Hoffecker for all her hard work in organizing them! Assistant Conductor Jan Taylor has volunteered to lead an hour-long workshop for those planning on singing octets this year. This will give people a chance to run through some of the tunes so you don't need to sightread in public (there may be a few new pieces this year), and she'll also give a few tips on small-group singing. Since we don't do much small ensemble singing in this Chorus, this should be an interesting enrichment. This workshop will take place on Saturday, Dec. 6, after the Christmas Pops rehearsal. All those who are singing octets are urged to participate - even if you've done this before, it's a chance for you to sing with the people who are doing this for the first time this year.

And speaking of Christmas..for those of you who may be leaving us after this concert until the New Year, here's a reminder to consider the Chorus Endowment if you are making year end charitable contributions at the end of 2003. Contributions to the Endowment made at this time will receive matching funds, and will be counted as part of our annual endowment campaign. Donors will receive acknowledgement in the annual program insert. Make checks payable to the Houston Symphony and indicate "chorus endowment" on the memo line. Checks can be given to either David Nussmann or Susan Scarrow, or contact Susan if you want mailing instructions.

Messiah scores & marking sheets available tonight: see Tony Sessions! Scores can be purchased for $8 apiece, checks payable to AMC music.
