Welcome back message from Kevin

Dear BUF Singers and Friends

I am excited about getting our BUF choirs going again!  Our first rehearsal will be on September 7.

More info about the year, including our Transylvania Pilgrimage, will be coming out in a few days.

In the meantime, here’s the low-down:

BUF Chalice Choir

-Mixed choir, all welcome, no auditions, no previous choral experience necessary

-rehearse Wednesdays 6:45-8pm in the BUF Sanctuary, starting on September 7

-Please bring potential new members along, whether they have sung in choir before or not.

-Sunday Performances: Sep 11; Oct 2; Nov 6; Dec 4; Jan 8; Feb 5; Mar 5; Apr 16

-2 Special Events: Dec 15 Evening Solstice Concert;  Feb 12 Afternoon Interfaith Festival

Phoenix Ensemble

-Used to be called Chamber Choir

-Select SATB ensemble, 16-20 voices, must also be a member of Chalice Choir

-rehearse Wednesdays 8:10-9pm in the BUF Sanctuary, starting September 14

-Sunday Performances: Sep 25; Oct 23; Nov 20; Jan 29; Feb 26; Mar 26

-Other community performances to be announced

-fun, user-friendly auditions will be held after the Chalice choir rehearsal on September 7

-Singers can’t also be in Womens Ensemble, because the two groups practice at the same time

I’ll be looking for a quartet of section leaders. It would be nice for these 4 singers to be in both choirs

and to be able to sight-sing a part without help from the piano.
