Alumni Directory - Help Wanted!

2006 Endowment Drive Continues Tonight!

Big or small, all contributions make a difference! Last year we had record participation levels - let's beat this record once again! Brochures and donation envelopes are available tonight. Envelopes can be handed in at rehearsals to Susan, or mailed in any time until May 16 for credit towards this year's campaign.

Re Audition Sign Up Starts

Re auditions will be held May 18 and May 20. Those needing to reaudition include members who have not reauditioned for two years, those on a one year rotation, provisional members, and Grand Chorus members. Lists are posted in the hallway if you need to check. Auditions will be held in quartets singing the following excerpts from the Verdi Requiem:

No. 1 Requiem

Meas. 28 - 55 (Te decet hymnus)

No. 2 Dies Irae

Meas. 573 - 612 (Dies irae reprise)

No. 7 Libera me

Meas. 132 - 155 (Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine)

Copies of these excerpts will be available next week for those who don't have the music. Please learn this music even if you didn't sing the Requiem in February.

Check Years of Service Lists

These are posted in the hallway along with the rules for assigning credit (based on singing 20% of rehearsals and concerts per semester, with summer concerts used for "make up credit"). Please write a Note to Susan if you have questions about your credit or want her to double check the records.

Mozart Requiem CDs available tonight from section leaders: Enjoy!

Chorus notes continue on back page..

May 19 Years of Service Awards and Season End Celebration

We will hold our year-end ceremonies on stage at Jones Hall after the first all Strauss concert on Friday, May 19. The Houston Symphony is hosting this thank you reception for chorus members, and it promises to be a special event!

Men singing Strauss: Please RSVP if you plan to attend (lists in hallway). Because of space limits, this event is for chorus members only, not guests, so men singing Strauss may want to use their comp ticket for another night.

Women: You are invited to attend the Strauss concert that evening as the
guest of the Symphony. If you would like a comp ticket for this concert, please sign up on the lists in the hallway.
