October 05, 2015 World Singing Day on Pearl Street
A slot just opened up for another choir to lead the public in singing 4 songs at the World Singing Day event on Pearl Street in Boulder on Saturday, October 24, from 11:30 am-1:30 pm.
I would love to have any members of Fairview choirs be involved. It would be wonderful if you guys could sing Excal's arrangement of “We Sing,” and also lead the public in singing “New York, New York,” “Let It Be,” and “Rocky Mountain High.” Here’s the event page: http://worldsingingday.org/boulder/
I’d like to get as many singers as possible to participate. You’d be singing to backing tracks (except for “We Sing” which would be a cappella). You’d need to rehearse probably for a couple of hours or so perhaps the weekend before. This is not a performance (except for “We Sing”) but rather a sing-along so you’d just be leading the public in singing the melody.
I’m hiring a videographer and photographer to document the event so we’ll have some good clips and shots of everyone.
I’d like people to get there by 11 am to help pass out lyric booklets and free Moe’s Bagels to the public. It’s OK if some members can’t be there the whole time but I encourage it. If those who can only be there for only the time Fairview is leading, they should be there by 12:30 at the latest.
We’re aiming for over 500 people to participate. The City of Boulder is also going to be promoting the event, as they will be taking a few minutes during the sing-along to make a special announcement.
If you're interested in helping out, please contact Katie Hughes at 720-301-2137 or firstname.lastname@example.org , she will forward the information to Scott. -Scott Johnson

August 30, 2015 Urgent help needed!
Choir Families We have an urgent need for volunteers this week and later in September to help with wardrobe. So that all the students will be outfitted by Extravaganza, we need to get everyone measured right away.
Can you help out?
Please review our scheduled work days and join us for snacks, socializing and a little work. Please remember, there is no experience necessary and only on alterations days are very basic sewing skills needed. This is a great way to meet other parents and interact with all of the students.
We need 5-7 volunteers for each class period. If you can sign up for two in the same day or one class period on a couple days.
Email the Wardrobe Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get your name added to our work schedule and to get answers to wardrobe questions.
