Hello Singers!

HERE you will find performance recordings, rehearsal recordings, and PDFs for each of our concert pieces.  First, here are the details for our performance day on Friday, December 8th:

CONCERT ATTIRE:

This is both a formal concert and a concert about personal expression.  Everyone needs to be in dress black from waist to toe.  Both short/long skirts and pants are fine, but the legs and toes need to be covered in black.  On the top, I invite you to wear a color or black with an accent of color.  Please avoid white and light pastels.  No large or obvious prints/patterns.  No t-shirts, jeans, sportswear, or sneakers.

LOCATION AND TRANSPORTATION:

7400 Woodlawn Ave NE is a former church space in Green Lake.  Parking there is limited and so we want to strongly encourage public transportation.  Bus options go to within a block and a half of the building.  Click here for a directions page that you can use yourself and pass along to friends and family.  

NOTE:  This location is further than normal from the University.  Please allow plenty of transportation time on the day of the concert!

CALL TIMES:

5:15 p.m.   Cohort Ensemble

5:45 p.m.   Recital Choir

6:30 p.m.   Instrumentalists who aren't singing
