Chorus update 3/10/2022
The chorus is again meeting “live” on Monday evenings at 6:30. For details click here.
At a recent chorus board meeting it was decided to relax COVID protocols somewhat since community transmission is down significantly, and rules in our community are also relaxing. All chorus members were invited to this meeting, and member input and agreement was sought and attained.
These are our new protocols:
– Proof of vaccination, or for those with a medical exception, documentation from a doctor, will still be required at this time.
– Masks will be optional. Those who are more comfortable wearing masks are encouraged to do so, while those who would rather sing without masks will be allowed to do so.
– Social distancing will still be encouraged. We will be looking at ways to change our rehearsal space to provide more distancing.
– We will still be facilitating air movement by using the air cleaner, fans and opening the doors.
– As the situation warrants the protocols will also change.
– Protocols – apply to both members and guests.
Please use the “Contact Us” form to tell us if you’d like to attend one of our meetings, or if you have questions regarding the above.
Our last Regional contest (2019) seems like ages ago! We love being able to see our Sweet Adeline sisters from other choruses, listen to the music and just have fun with our friends. Things were, of course, different this year and last. Early in 2020, we were working, like most Sweet Adeline choruses, on our contest numbers for Spring Regional, which was scheduled in April. Well you know the rest of the story, this would have been a large event, and was, of course, cancelled.
To see our 2019 contest performance here’s the GOC chorus performance at the 2019 Region 13 Contest.
In 2019, our chorus director, Connie Alward, had a very rewarding contest weekend, along with her former quartet Wink. They took home a well-deserved first place in the Region 13 quartet competition. Here they are shortly after their win. Grand Olympics was both proud and happy for Wink. We were sad when they recently disbanded, “parting with love, gratefulness and absolutely life-long friends.”
