No Rehearsal Dec 11

No rehearsal Dec 11.  We will rehearse again on Dec 18, then not until January 8.

Non-Profit Status Approved

We are officially a 501(c)3 public charity!  This allows us to accept tax deductible donations and apply for grants.   Thanks to the OML president Megan Shepard and the board for making this a reality.

Friends and supporters, consider how you can help our organization grow.  Getting the word out to friends and family about our choirs is a huge help.  We need ten more members of teh Choir to reach our operating expenses through tuition.   We could use help in grant writing and tax-deductible donations to support the good work we do.  You can message us at OurMusicalLife@ymail.com with your ideas.

This is particularly gratifying for me.  I had hoped to start OML to give people a place where they felt the belonged, a place where they would feel valued.  I wanted the children all over SE Wisconsin to experience the incredible success we had received with the Gifford Children’s Choir.  Now we can step up our efforts to make the world a better place through singing!

Witches, Ghosts and Goblins

 

Here’s the kids from last week’s rehearsal.  Come join us on Thursday nights at 6 PM.

 

Christmas Choir and Teh Choir

It is time to start up our annual Christmas choir called the Racine Community Choir.  Come this Thursday and/or Thursdays between now and  Dec 7. We sing a couple secular Christmas songs after a few rehearsals.  It is a great low commitment way to get families singing together.  Anyone old enough to read is welcome to sing with us.  Children should be accompanied by an adult.

We have one concert at the Gifford Elementary School Concert at Case H.S. on December 7 at 3:30 PM.  We will be singing songs like Holly Jolly Christmas. We rehearse at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection 7:30-8:15 PM (next to Goodland School)

Teh Choir should come to rehearsal this week at 6 PM as usual except they should come in costume.  We will be making a short Halloween video.

Adventure Time, Gumball, Turtles and More

Great stuff planned for this year, Ninja Turtle Theme Song, songs from Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball and this just in… Craig Minowa of Cloud Cult OKed our cover of Transistor Radio.   We’ll sing the Minecraft song again of course and we may bring back some old repertoire as well!

This Thursday is the parent meeting for Children’s Choir of teh Internet and the all New Concert Choir (Grades 6-8). Meeting from 6-6:30 then auditions for new members.  Returning singers can just send their parents.

See you soon! Tell your friends!
