First Rehearsal

So, we had our first rehearsal at choir on Wednesday. Yesterday. It was good. I forget that people forget about the first rehearsal, decide not to be in it at the last minute etc.

When I first started, we had a few more people than we do now. Well, I don't think the numbers are different, just jostled a bit. We lost a few, 2 tenors (both of which were sometimes there), a couple of basses (1 who was celebrating his 50th anniversary with the choir), and a soprano (wife of one of the tenors. We've gained two sopranos, an alto, and a couple of basses. I guess that's a net change of zero. But what can I do to change this cycle?

Here are my ideas;
  • do mostly SAB music, to get higher quality sound (and not kill our sole tenor)
  • do some more "fun" music, like gospel and/or African
  • do nothing, it's not my fault after all.

This is all, I'm going to bed, good night.

Prayers for a friend

In a little while, I will be going to the town of my Alma Mater to meet up with a friend and her family.

Her father has not been doing well lately, and on Monday had a tracheotomy. He has slowly been going down hill and has asked to let him pass.

My request is for prayer for her, her children and husband, her mother and father, and all the people who have been touched by their lives (there have been many).
