Music, Seat Assignments, and April 5 Meeting

The Choir group is working hard finalizing the repertoire and polishing the music that we will perform on the the tour. We have had two extended practices in the last week, along with preparing all of the music for the upcoming Easter Triduum. We will get in a couple of practices the week between Easter and our departure on April 21 to put a "final polish" on our tour music. We hope that our fellow tour participants and our Italian guests will enjoy our efforts.

Our flight seat assignments have been made by the tour company. We will distribute a list FYI soon. Bring your American Airlines frequent flyer number to the airport if you want FF credit for these flights.

Our final predeparture meeting will be 1-3 pm on Sunday, April 5. We will discuss tour details and questions and packing tips and gather emergency contact and insurance information. Please let us know if you have any questions in the interim, at
