Thank you for a productive Tuesday despite the cancelled previous week.

8:30 – 9:10 set up percussion and place the chairs (which will be in the Sanctuary, beside the platform)

(…that percussion be set up on each side of the platform, forward of the organ console –

                                in front of the choir seating)

9:15 – 9:45 Choir rehearsal in Sanctuary.

9:15 – 9:40 your other band members arrive and gather in Room 7, get their instruments ready and warm up.

9:45 – 10:15 band rehearses in the Sanctuary

Please answer this poll with your name AND instrument so that we have a clear idea of who will be there
