There are two half-hour opportunities to review this song before its use in Learn Arm Waving (LAW) School:
And speaking of LAW school, come and try it, even if you can't stay for the whole day - we need singers and we need people to try out directing!
Saturday Morning Coffee and Tea!
New this year, thanks to the wonderful work of our Events Coordinator, Mary Mamer: No need to stand in line on Saturday morning to get your coffee in the lobby. We will serve coffee and tea at the back of the Grand Ballroom!
Whether you're in a quartet or just trying to find one, there's something this weekend for all of you. Check the "Audience" column and look for the 4 singers, to find the classes that are specifically targeting quartets.
And remember to be there to support the novice quartets and double quartets on Saturday night. This year we have a YWIH Quartet Contest, too!
YWIH Workshop Day
Have you encouraged the young women in your life to sign up for the Saturday YWIH workshop day? They'll need to send in some paperwork in advance - check this info page: YWIH A CAPPELLA WORKSHOP
Lots on the menu for arrangers and wanna-bes, this weekend! Check the "Audience" column for classes geared to your interests.

Please come and share your thoughts on the kinds of leadership training we need, either at the chorus level and/or the regional level, with Regional Education Coordinator Julie Starr on Saturday at 10:45.
