Harvard Sings, Continued

Hi all,

We’ve had positive responses, but we still need more people (especially men!) to make this work. Please do consider signing on — it would be great to get ourselves more in the public eye, and fun just to sing!

Original Message:

Harvard Pro Musica needs more members, and we’d like to be better known in the community. We think we have come up with a fun way to accomplish both: let’s sing some of those wonderful spirituals again — or learn them if you missed them the first time around! We’d like to offer ourselves as a guest choir in some local churches this summer and early fall, singing some of our crowd-pleasing and energy-filled repertoire as anthems. Churches have singers and potential audience members. Let’s get ourselves out there and let them know Harvard Sings!

Here are some possibilities for repertoire, pieces we did in our spring concert and at the workshop. But don’t worry if you didn’t sing in those; they’re all very learnable (and all great)!

My Soul’s Been Anchored in the Lord
Walk Together, Children
Soon Ah Will Be Done
My Lord, What a Morning
Unclouded Day
The Road Home

If you’re interested please let us know at harvardsings@harvardpromusica.org. We’d love to gather enough voices to make this happen. And let us know if you have a church you think would like to have us visit on a Sunday morning!

Potluck Tomorrow!

Hi all,

Reminder: our potluck and meeting is 7:30 tomorrow — that’s Tuesday — at Eleanor’s house, 37 Flanagan Rd in Bolton.

Food signup sheet is here; right now it’s looking a little… sparse. Which might be fine — potlucks always seem to work out! But if you’ve already decided what you’ll bring, you could note it there.

If you could reply to this to let us know whether you’re coming, that would help with the planning.

Thanks, and see you tomorrow!
Michael

If you’re coming to the workshop

(And I hope lots of you are!) here’s a message from Carey:

Hi HPM!

I hope you will join us for the workshop on Saturday, June 3 beginning at 10:30AM at First Church in Sterling or for the concert that evening at 6PM. If you are coming to the workshop please bring “Walk Together Children”. I’d love to do this piece for the concert if we have enough singers.

Thank you and hope to see you there,
Carey

End-of-Year Potluck! And Meeting

Hi all,

First, congratulations to us for a great concert last week — Many thanks to Carey, Susan, and all of you!

Our annual potluck dinner and meeting — our Eat-n-Meet? — will be June 6, the Tuesday after the workshop, at 7:30 at Eleanor Toth’s house, 37 Flanagan Rd on Bolton. Here’s a food sign-up sheet. I hope to see you all then — and at the workshop on the 3rd!

Concert Info

Hi all,

We had two good rehearsals this week, and I hope everyone is psyched for tomorrow!

Some reminders:

  • Call is at 6:15 — that means ready to sing!
  • Set up at 5:45, for those volunteered.
  • Dress: black, long sleeves.
  • Please don’t park right next to the church/town hall or in the Hildreth lot. There is parking at the Fellowship Hall.

See you tomorrow —
Michael
