Kickoff to the New Year!

20161008_141510-3Hello Chorale followers! This year, UW’s Chorale had our annual “beginning of the year” retreat early this October! It was a great way for new members to meet other members of the choir. We had ice breakers, playing games like “Never Have I Ever” and other introductory games. We also rehearsed our new music, which gave us a head start on our performance pieces and gave members an introduction to the types of music we will be singing this year.

We also introduced the new year’s cabinet members at the 20161008_141650-2retreat, introducing some new members in addition to the returning members! This years cabinet includes Bradyn Rookard, Evan Shelton, Lillian Karout, Magnolia Pattison, Marcy Landes, Miriam Nunley, Natale Modlin, Nick Reynolds, Sam Fredman, Stephanie Hobart, and Zachary Buker. With such a strong group of passionate Chorale members, this year’s choir is due to be a success!

The event went flawlessly and it was a perfect experience for first year Chorale members to get in the game. It was a great way to kick off the new year and get members excited about upcoming events.
