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!

1. Siyahamba: nice! Singing as written, repeat 1 and 2 English, 3 and 4 Zulu, ending English.
2. Let There Be Peace with flute and cello! Wow! So powerful!
3. We Wish You a Merry Madrigal Yikes! a new song so late in the season?! We rocked it. No worries. It's perfect.
4. Welcome Christmas middle, and beginning and end again- review with the recordings on the website if you need extra help.
5. Grown-up Christmas List- all good except many of us forgot the ending. Review with the recordings on the website if you can, please.
6. Imagine- so beautiful in combination with Grown-up List and also in the spirit of Remembrance Day, where we remember but we also move forward with  hope towards a peaceful future.

The following week, Monday, November 26 is the run-through rehearsal at Trinity Anglican in Aurora. Small groups and soloists arrive starting at 6:00, everyone else at 7:00 so we can start a bit early. This is usually a very long night. We will try out the order and will figure out where everyone should stand and sit and walk, and deal with microphones and everything. I have to give you the order of the concert soon!
