BV Update 01-11

Dear BV Families,

Thanks to those of you who were able to travel to Butler safely yesterday. We were missing 20 singers due to the weather, but the 30 or so who attended will be able to lead the others next week in learning new repertoire.
Here are some important notes for the week:
1) Weather protocol:
Winter brings unexpected weather, and you will be notified if there is a rehearsal cancellation. In a case like yesterday, if we are holding rehearsal and you feel it is unsafe for you to travel from your home, you must contact Michelle Jarvis via email, text or with an individual Facebook message directly to Michelle.  If you contact her in advance of BV rehearsal, the absence is excused. Otherwise, the absence is unexcused and must be made up.
2) Calendar dates: We have an exciting semester ahead of us with lots of great opportunities for BV! Please look at the calendar on the BV webpage carefully. Here are some highlights:
Altered BV rehearsals (1:15-4:00 Sundays) – Feb 14, April 17, May 15
Voices of Youth: Dress rehearsal March 7, Concert March 13
New Concert – world premier with orchestra – BV and Kantorei, Friday, April 15 at Schrott Center. Details to follow soon!
30th Anniversary Concert: April 29 – Dress rehearsal. April 30 – performances at both 3 and 7 pm
High School concert: May 22, 4 pm at Indy
Tour rehearsal: Sunday, June 5, 2-4:30
Bahamas Tour: June 7-11
Also, add to your calendars passport application or renewal ASAP if you have not yet done so!
3) Recordings online: Please encourage your Bella to practice with recordings this week by listening to Faure Messe Basse, Love Learns by Laughing, and Embraceable You. All Bellas should begin listening to parts, regardless of whether or not they have music yet.
4) Winter Clothing Drive: Now that it’s actually winter, we need more donations for our clothing drive! Bring in those gently used coats, hats, mittens, sweaters, etc.
Have a safe week, and stay warm!
Mrs. Hughley
