I have not been doing notes as of yet because John has been doing notes about what we are to

work on. I will start with this weeks rehearsal.   Please make your own notes and make use of the
rehearsal tracks  on achorale.net or any other site you may find helpful.   I have been doing notes for
seven years and like to pass the job on to someone else. Please let me know if you would do it.
Thanks, Dick.
