Dresses for BrucknerPlease sign the list TONIGHT if you will need to borrow a dress for the Bruckner concert. Those borrowing a dress will need to pay $10 for cleaning costs when you return dresses after the Bruckner concerts.

ITS

The individual testing sessions (ITS) for the Bruckner will be held prior to next Tuesday's rehearsal. If you are a provisional member, or know that you need an ITS for some other reason, please sign up TONIGHT for your ITS. We will arrange quartets for you to sing in, and I will let you know what time you are scheduled for during that hour. The ITS cuts are the following (others may want to brush up on these too!):

1.	Page 8,  measure 59-70 
2.	Page 15, m. 138 (beat 3) - 160
3.	Page 26, m. 28 (beat 4) - 43
4.	Page 43 (fugue), measure 31-85

Bruckner TicketsSign up in the hall for complimentary tickets tonight and next week. Comp tickets are available for the Sunday afternoon and Monday evening performances only. Discount tickets are available for all three concerts. To purchase discount tickets phone the Houston Symphony box office (713-224-7575) and identify yourself as a member of the chorus. They will tell you ticket price and availability, and you can pay with a credit card. If you do a discount ticket order this week they will mail out the tickets; otherwise they will be available at the box office "will call" window.

Bruckner Te Deum scores

are available for purchase for $10.

Are you Lost in Cyberspace?? Get an "e-mail buddy"! Many important Chorus memos are distributed by e-mail. Most members have e-mail accounts, but if you don't, or if you're someone who only checks your e-mail once a month, find an "e-mail buddy" in your section who will contact you when we send out announcements about things you need to know before the next rehearsal. Really nice buddies could even bring print-outs of e-mails on Tuesday night, particularly when section leaders send out markings and musical notes. Please consider helping out this way if someone asks you: plugging the holes in our e-mail communication system will help us all! And if you change your e-mail address, please be sure to send Susan Scarrow your new address immediately so you'll stay in the loop for Chorus communications.

CHRISTMAS OCTETSEvery year we have groups go out and sing at Christmas to make money for our tour fund. This is especially important this December, with a trip to France scheduled for next fall. There are two ways you can help. If you would like to volunteer to sing in an octet at some point during the holiday season, please contact Sally Hoffecker at siddingo @ wans.net . Also, if you know of a company or group that would be willing to pay to have an octet perform at a holiday party or in a lobby, etc., please let Sally know that as well. All money received from these performances will go into our general tour fund, to benefit all members of the chorus participating in the trip next October. (We would love to have you help, even if you will not be able to go to France!)

CALENDAR/HANDBOOKIn an effort to save money for the symphony, Cheryl emailed this year's calendar/handbook. For those of you who don't have email, or were unable to open the attachment, we will have more copies of the calendar/handbook next week.

Did you know that there is a chorus yahoo group?

This group gets/gives info on CDs, ticket offers,

and all kinds of things.

If you would like to be on the list,

contact Roger Cutler at rcutler @ airmail.net .
