I just got the shivers. Remember the way you felt at the beginning of school when the very smell of crayons, chalk dust, class rooms, and other kids got you all revved up and shivery and ready to start? Well, that is close to how I feel knowing that the first Ozarks Chorale rehearsal on September 18 is just over one month away. What really brought on the excitement for me was getting a peek at the list of music that Beth has selected for our fall concert series and getting to listen to this gorgeous music on her You Tube channel. Many new exciting pieces are interwoven with classic favorites that I am familiar with – a few that I have even sung before. Librarian Karen Masters is collecting copies and starting stacks of music for each singer, ably assisted by Anne Shepherd. Karen tells me that we should be all set to sing come September 18. Be sure to mark your calendar with BIG RED letters for this first practice – we always start off with a blast of fun and energy. I hope to see you there!
