Hey Everybody,


Wanted to send you a quick communique to invite you to the Summer Sings!

We are meeting on August 7th and 14th from 7-8:30 p.m. at Santa Rosa Bible Church. We will be in one of the small front rooms. 

This is a great time for you to bring along some visitors to look us over - the more, the merrier! It's also just a fun chance to sing together a little bit and look over the music for the following sessions. That way we can get all the grumbling out of our systems before we begin the actual class schedule...

We will have music available to purchase on these evenings. No $$$$ please - just checks! We will be taking a look at Camina Burana as well as the opera choruses that we are singing in the Fall. 

Hope you have enjoyed your summer - I'm really looking forward to seeing you all again!

BH

P.S. Class begins Monday, August 21!
