Please reply - Gentlemen:practice schedule for Christmas Eve black tie

Happy Advent gentlemen!

As has been announced recently, Allen has graciously offered time in his busy schedule to rehearse with us for our annual black tie, Christmas Eve, leadership of carols and sacred music for the 8:00 PM liturgy in the church.

Two practices are scheduled. We're each asked to participate in at least one of the two practices. They are:

December 9 (this Saturday) at 8:30 AM in the choir room.

December 16 (one week from this Saturday) at 8:30 in the choir room.

The choir room, somewhat new and for those who may not yet know, is a former nursery which has been converted for this purpose. If you were to enter from the blacktop behind the church at the entrance closest to the commons, the choir room is located directly in front of that entrance. Look for us gathering outside of it.

On Christmas Eve, we'll gather in the choir room for a final tune up at 7:00 PM. After rehearsing for 20 minutes or so, we'll head into the church in front of the Mary altar to begin leading the congregation in carols prior to the 8:00 PM start of the Mass.

Please reply here with your intentions:

To sing with The Gentlemen December 24 at the 8:00 PM liturgy (black tie).

To practice either 12/9, 12/16, or both.

As always gentlemen, thank you!
