Rehearsal Cancelled January 23

Due to poor weather conditions, rehearsal is cancelled for tonight.

Please consider that our concert is coming up soon, so we were reluctant to call off tonight's rehearsal.

Registration will continue to next week, before our rehearsal on Jan 30.

In addition, on Tuesday February 6 (two weeks from now) rehearsal will begin at 7:00 pm as this will give us some extra practice just before our joint rehearsal with the orchestra.

Please use this opportunity to practice at home :)

And stay warm and dry!

The Board of the Fredericton Choral Society.
