We’re not even at the halfway point and already well into the music!!!! So very fantastic.
Thank you for your efforts to prepare and to come with a great attitude. We have such a wonderful community. Each and everyone of you are an integral part of our Chorus. 

What’s next? 

Costume party break time: If you have costumes ideas or things to share, bring them to choir and model for us or show us what your ideas are. 

You could use our songs for ideas; Pink Panther movie characters, Beach Boys cool, or ABBA wide legged pants and glam. Hats are allowed. Have fun!

Make some no-sew bell bottoms!

Pauline’s Tea Corner.

The favourite hot drinks so far are:

  • Bengal spice tea
  • Christmas cider
  • Hot chocolate with marshmallows

Please let Pauline know what your favourite is.

Thanks to those of you who have offered to help . We are also looking for small Styrofoam cups which proves to be difficult. Please pick up appropriate small cups for hot drinks if you come across them in your travels.

Thanks to Irene for bringing cookies. So yummy!

It’s so great to get to know everyone during break. Olds choir is so much fun and a wonder challenge.
