Touring Group – one chapter ends, another begins

The Touring Group had a 2nd ‘Happy Hour’ on 5/23/20. Moria Smiley joined in as special guest. The next get together is scheduled for Sat 6/20/20 at 1pm. This could be the last one we’ll do, unless we need to gather again to rehearse for a final project.

Plans for a CD recording and/or music video, considering the 7/1 deadline is not going to be possible. There are still some ideas we’ll be working on for a final project…… a video of the whole group using Acapella or some other app…… a final performance at the New World Festival on 9/6.

Meanwhile we look forward to and are planning for 2020/2021. Recruitment and auditions for group members will happen over the summer (poster below with more details). On line rehearsals will happen from September into December. By January we will know if we can resume with in-person or on-line rehearsals and performances. There will be no trip payments for anyone until Dec 2020….. but fundraising projects will likely start in Oct or Nov. Destination assumption for April is Quebec. If still COVID-19 restricted, the April project could be on-line visits with former partners in England, Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton, New York/New Jersey, Japan, etc. Questions and more info at mark.sustic@gmail.com.
