We will be decorating the stage with poinsettias this year. They will be available for purchase for $10 each, and can be taken for personal use by the purchaser after the performance.
The dress rehearsal is scheduled for Monday, November 26, and the performance will be on Tuesday, November 27, 7:00 pm at the Carolina Theatre in downtown Greensboro.

If your snail mail address, email address, phone number, or other contact information has changed since last year, please send an email to email@example.com and let me know.
Attention to any singer who lives in the Lindley Park area: please let me know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be willing and able to offer a ride to another singer.
And a special note — thanks to all of you for all of your support over the past 65 years. After 65 years of taking music to the community, the time to end has come. The Messiah performance on November 27 will be our last concert; the group will disband after that. Again, thank you for supporting us over the years.
Come sing with us!
