Christmas CDs are here!!

If you weren’t here last week, see your section leader to pick up your complimentary copy of “Glad Tidings”.  Everyone who performed on the CD will receive one complimentary copy.  EVERYONE in the chorus may buy up to 15 CDs at the Artists’ Rate of $10 each.  Distribution dates are as follows:


Nov. 18: Sales to Chorus (before rehearsal and during the break of the Mahler Orch.
Rehearsal at Jones Hall)

Nov. 30 Sales to Chorus (Christmas Choruses rehearsal at UH)




Comp. Ticket Sign Up for Mahler

ENDS Tonight

Please sign the lists in the hall to reserve your comp. ticket.  You can also sign up for tickets next week. As usual, if you would like to purchase discount tickets alongside your comp ticket, don’t sign up for a comp ticket here.  Instead, call the box office at its normal number:  713-224-7575.  (Discount tickets may also be purchased separately from the comp ticket, but you are only eligible for the discount for concert series in which you perform.)


If you aren’t going to use your ticket, why not ask around in your section to see if someone else could use an extra seat??




**Last Chance to Sell those**

** Chorus Subscription Packages!!**

With our Mahler concert coming up next week, this is the last chance to sell these tickets!  Get your friends discount tickets, raise money for the Chorus, and win prizes for yourself!!  So far our lead salesperson has sold 5 packages: can anyone beat this?  And
as of last week only altos and tenors had made sales: where are the basses and the sopranos??? Remember, subscription packages start as low as $101 for 4 concerts – a real bargain!  So let’s take advantage of this great opportunity to build our audience, and to boost the chorus tour fund!!



Chorus Handbooks and rosters are available for those who just re-joined us for the Christmas concerts.
