Rehearsals are scheduled to begin for the Fall 2021 Concert. It has been a long time since we have sung together, so we are excited to be able to sing again. The first rehearsal will be on September 7, 2021, at 7:15pm.
To protect everyone’s health in the current climate, we will require all members to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to participate. In addition we will be requiring members to wear masks whenever we gather indoors. Some members are looking into masks designed for singers.
Our benefit concert for Sunnyvale Community Services on May 5th, 2019 was extremely successful. We sang to a full house at Trinity Methodist Church in Sunnyvale. Marie Bernard was on hand to give an overview of all the work that Sunnyvale Community Services does to keep families in their homes, and to help homeless families find housing. At the end of the concert, as everyone was enjoying refreshments at the reception, it was revealed over $5,000 was raised for the Benefit of Sunnyvale Community Services!
One of the traditions here at Sunnyvale Singers is the benefit concert that we sing each semester for Sunnyvale Community Services. The benefit is usually held one week before our concert, and features selections from our concert program. A free-will offering is taken up, and the proceeds are donated to Sunnyvale Community Services.
In the fall newsletter from Sunnyvale Community Services is a small article featuring the Sunnyvale Singers. According to the article, these benefit concerts have raised $26,000 over the years.
A potluck dinner at Toyon Farm Club House on August 20 offered a great opportunity to share good food and good company during the Summer break. Thanks to Jack for hosting and to all who made it a memorable occasion.
