Chorus Update for the week of January 20th

Courtesy of Kate:

1. We ran through the two new pieces - Beatles and From a Distance.
2. We also ran through Somewhere Out There, Love Will Keep Us Together and Rainbow Connection.
3. We also worked on three movements of Wedding Cantata.
4. We spent quite a bit of time working on the 3rd movement of the Pinkam piece, Many Waters. Lisa wants us to practice it! (Lisa is expecting us to forget - let's give her a pleasant surprise!).
