Suspending Song Review this season, until spring 2016

Dear Music friends in Saigon,

For the past years you have been so supportive of our regular Song Review, teaching new English Songs to the various choirs around the Saigon area.  Many of you have been asking when the next one might be.

I had tentatively planned to have one on Tuesday night, in early December, but after more considering I am postponing that event.  

• The OCP Vietnam Team is releasing many new products this month and it would be stressful for them to prepare for another event. 
• A new English Mass has begun at Phu Cuong Cathedral and a Children’s English Mass has begun at Martino Church in Thanh Binh, and they need lots of basic repertoire and Mass parts, and this is taking up lots of my free time, to bring them to the levels of the other English Choirs…will take several months
• I will be away in Phnom Penh and Hanoi during November, and scheduling rehearsals with the Song Review Octet would be difficult

SO, instead of a Song Review, please consider attending the Wednesday night, November 11th, Workshop on Choirs in Music Ministry, 7:15 pm to 8:30 pm.

Most of you have gotten the email about pre-registration already.  I will introduce one or two new songs during that workshop, as part of the presentation.

Please remind your choirs to sign up, that they must pre-register to attend.  Hope to see some of you then!

I am hoping that we can gather the various English Choirs in the Saigon area, and maybe even have two new choirs join us, after Easter, 2016.
