Instead of singing every Sunday at the early (8:30a.m.) worship service as usual, our choir director (?) has decided that an octet from the choir should also sing at second service (11:00a.m.) every Sunday with a rehearsal between the services to learn a new song for second service (...instead of just singing the choir anthem we sang at the first service and already know).
I sing soprano in the choir and was "appointed" to be in the octet for second services. I did NOT volunteer, as I am not too keen on the idea of being there from 7:30 a.m.-noon every Sunday (and neither is anyone else in the choir), and having to miss the Adult Forum/Sunday School. Argh!!! What to do?!?!? What to do?!?!?
So, today, I took a pix or our stack of choir music (7 on the right side...and we still don't have any Christmas pieces yet!) for first service, and the booklet & CD for second service music (on the left side) I am heading to choir practice shortly to see how everyone else is feeling about this. It doubles our weekly time commitment for choir from 3 to 6 hours... which I think is a bit much for a small country church choir, IMHO.
