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 Performance Review- 31-May-2022

 Mackenzie Place is alway a good performance! We were great, and everyone had a good time. Staff and residents alike sang and even danced along. 

I was a bit worried about needing to reduce our numbers to 6 (8 with Donna and me) but it was fine. The sound was good and the blending of voices was outstanding. 

Staff set up plexiglass screens for us to stand behind so that we could take off our masks. They were surprisingly good. Our projector and screen worked well again. I skipped over our whaling/sailor songs, so we got through lots of sing-alongs.

The staff that did the rapid tests were kind and gentle. And, waiting gave us time to hang out together. Afterwards, we were saying it would be nice to go out for a drink after next week’s performance. If you have a place to recommend in Aurora, let me know, but I’ll also take a look and we’ll have a plan.

We have a plan for a fun group activity in November! Melinda suggested that we go to Choir!Choir!Choir! Epic 80’s Singalong! We bought 10 tickets and can get more if we need to, but these things sell out, so think about it now. It’s at the RHCPA on November 18th, 2022.

I love my choir!
