The Summer is ending

10295178_695926990461560_1350741281691520494_oThis was it, last Monday’s performance at BARC was the last singing engagement we have for the summer.  The shifting of gears has already happened for winter, we have a Christmas number in our folders.

It’s amazing how fast it happens.  County fairs have already started and just after the middle of August some area schools will start.  Summer will be over.  In the mean time we can look forward to our chapter picnic and singing at the Twins game on August 17.

Details are still coming in for the picnic.  This year we will be hosted by Ken and Jean Fast at their home at 1845 Red Leaf Court.  To get to their house, head northwest out of Windom on River Road (County 13) to 18th Ave.  Take 18th Ave. north and take a left on Red Leaf Court.  Their house will be on your left.  Red Leaf Court is U-shaped so if you miss the first one, take the second one and go around the loop.

Last I heard it was burgers on the grill and a dish to pass.  Bring your own dinner ware.  Food will be served at 7.  Any other details or changes will be announced at practice.  See you all there.

BARC Picnic

The details are in for the BARC picnic.

Monday, July 21, we will be singing for those attending the picnic at 6:00.  Singers should gather in Room 10, our dressing area, to warm up at 5:30.

There will be a short practice immediately after we sing at the church.  Kent promises to let us out early.  No uniform, just street cloths.  Please be sure to tell everyone of the change in practice time.10448483_693991690655090_6499331793782274714_o

Summer 2014

A busy summer has already started.  Our first tour of churches was last Sunday, June 15 in Windom and was well received.  Members and fans may want to get some of these dates on their calendar.

July 11 will find us singing at Jackson’s Rhythm of the River Days.  Details will be coming, but for now put 5:30 down as our singing time.

July 13 will be our second tour of churches going east this time.

July 20 is the date for our last tour of churches as we sing in the north part of our area.

July 21 will be the BARC picnic.  Since that is a Monday, we will meet early to sing and then practice after that.

Those of you wanting to go to the Twins game need to talk to Terry to get on the list.  We will be joining other chapter from the region to sing on August 17.  Here’s your chance to be on Target field.images

The very next day we will have our chapter picnic.  That’s August 18 for those of you not keeping track.

Many of these days do not as yet have times locked down so be sure to be at practice. As I get more details I will let you know.

Our new summer shirts have been well received.  Please take care of them, they should give us many years of use.  Uniform of the day will also be discussed at practice.

The show is over

Our 2014 show “Celebrate Harmony” is over.  The reviews were good.  We were pleased to have four new faces on the risers this year.  It’s been some time since we had any new faces, so four in one year is really fun.  So here is a picture to see what we looked like on the show.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We’ve been very happy with our Youth in Harmony program over the last few years.  This year we invited members of the event to come sing with us.  We had three young men join us for the evening show.  You will not have any trouble finding them in this picture.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A busy year is planned.  We hope to see you at one of our performances.  If you would like to come sing with us, we really like to see you on Monday night.
