1. High Notes

  • June 5:  Oak City Sound in concert at Searstone! We put on a very good show. The new section-based standing order contrbuted. We had 18 singers on the risers, plus 2 of our recent guests in the audience: Michael McQueen and Patrick O'Hannigan.  Patrick took many photos at the concert
  • June 12 (Monday): Regular meeting at our regular time at our regular location: Searstone Retirement Community at 7pm. We will rehearse the following:
    • Prayer of the Children
    • Two Less Lonely People
    • Honesty
    • Desperado
    • March of the Wooden Soldiers (bring your kazoos! ;-) )
    • Jingle Bell Rock
  • Hey, how many of you are keeping your Attendance Plan up to date???? Go to and record your planned attendance!

2. Carol's Korner

  • Great show on Monday night! I heard from MANY Searstone residents about how much they enjoyed the performance and how much the chorus has improved, even since they heard us last December.
  • I think the new riser order we tried on Monday was a great change and we are going to stick with that. Let's keep working on balancing the voice parts - leads most prominent, then bass, then fill in the chord with just a sprinkling of tenor and baritone.
  • Let's keep working on the new songs and keep riding this great wave of progress as musicians and performers!
