Welcome to Renate's Baton. This blog is mostly for and about my choir, The York Region Community Choir.

But, While I'm holding the baton, I'm in charge. So, if I want to talk about other parts of my life, I will. :)

The choir itself is a community and I'm discovering that we have a lot in common with one another besides our love of music and singing.

When I go off on a tangent, there is always a crowd coming along. Join us!

YRCC Oct. 9 Rehearsal for Oct 15 Concert for the Aurora Community Cafe

Our concert rehearsal was perfect. That is, we had enough terrible moments to ensure that the concert goes smoothly. A rehearsal with no mistakes is unlucky ;-)

We will need to work on 2 things before the concert at 1:00: The ending of Hine Ma Tov and the ending of In Our Town in December. We'll also give the soloists a chance to play with Joy and the microphones from 12:30-1:00.

Just a note on the fundraising: We are supporting St. Andrew's, but if you read their flyer you'll know that we are supporting a special project of theirs which will help the whole community:

The Aurora Community Café is a non-profit café with a social purpose involving local non-profit organizations, faith communities and individuals working together to
 - serve fair-trade coffee, tea, and freshly baked goods
- offer work experience to adults with disabilities in a supportive environment
- create a space for the community to come together
Open every Wednesday starting November 8th from 10am – 2pm 
(Located in St. Andrew’s, 32 Mosley St. – Victoria St. Entrance)
