2012 • A New Season Dawns

Lahaina, Maui

Greetings. I hope everyone had a restorative and productive summer.

Hopefully, by now, interested singers have found all the information necessary to help orient themselves toward the Meet & Greet (Sept. 5th) and Auditions (Sept 10th). I received many inquiries over the summer. My apologies if I didn't respond quickly. It was summertime after all. 

Thank you to all who used the blog to investigate the Ensemble. Of course, a positive development is the addition of the Facebook page. Click here or at right to link to our Facebook page.

In addition to recruitment via social media and the School of Music website, posters are up in student residences and most other buildings on campus. And, this year we have a splashy notice running on the big screen at the Welcoming Centre.

! - We need two or three people to help greet passersby at the UVic fountain on Tuesday (4th) and Wednesday (5th) from noon to 1pm to hand out posters.

I'm looking forward to meeting singers new and returning, and I'm looking forward to an exciting term filled with good music and good times.

See you soon!
Wendell
