Choir News

OHC April 24

 Regular Rehearsals
at Grace United Methodist Church, OKC

The Final Countdown

There are only 3 more rehearsals including this week and the concert day.  As such we will be having a few extra combined rehearsals over the next several weeks during the 10:00-10:30 time slot.  This will be in addition to all regularly scheduled rehearsals.  Please check for when you will need to be present for these extra rehearsals

April 24--Combined Middle School and Elementary School Choirs
May 1--Combined rehearsal for ALL choirs

Convention--May 4-5

Don't forget that we are going to strive to make our presence known this year at convention both with a booth and ensemble performances during Friday's lunch hour in the food court.  

As of this week we have all times available from 1:50 p.m. on Friday to 4:20 p.m. on Saturday free for you sign up.  We need all families to sign up for at least one time slot, if possible.  If you are concerned about signing up when there is a conference you want to go to the workshop schedule is now posted.  Go check it out and be prepared to sign up for one or more times on Tuesday.  

If you are not attending the conference, we will be glad to make arrangements to meet you at the door with a vendor pass.  As a thank you, you can even keep the pass for up to 30 minutes afterwards to browse the vendor booths before handing it off to the next booth worker.  If this is your plight please make sure to put an asterisk and cell number by your name so we may contact you  the day of, if need be.

This Tuesday is the last day to sign up on this schedule before I start calling you one by one.  Please oh please sign up so I don't have to do this.  Seriously, each of us has much more to do besides make phone calls all day.  I'd love it if I could walk out of rehearsal on Tuesday and every slot were filled.  You can do it!  We're a team after all.  Thanks for being willing to serve.


The Elementary, Middle School and High School Choirs have the opportunity to sing a few of their songs in the food court area over lunch at the convention on Friday.   Performance times are:

11:20 a.m. to 11:40 a.m.   High School Ensemble 1
11:40 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Middle School Ensemble
12:00 p.m. to 12:20 p.m.  Elementary Ensemble
12:20 p.m. to 12:40 p.m.  High School Ensemble 2

Please check with your child(ren) to be sure they have signed up for an ensemble, if able.  We need all able-bodied singers on board to make this a success.  This is our one opportunity to show the homeschool community what we are all about.  Let's make it a good one!  All ensemble participants will meet in the food court area approximately 5 minutes before their scheduled performance time.  All songs sung will be songs we've been rehearsing for the Spring concert.

Please check the registration table and sign up information below for more information.
