Member Appreciation Banquet

Food, Fun, Frolic... without face masks!

Hello, Singers!

You are invited to the Women’s Choral Society Member Appreciation Banquet 2023! This is a special time for members to get together to celebrate another successful, fun year of making music together. It is also an opportunity to recognize our dedicated volunteers who will receive the Galaxy and Star Awards. Former members are also welcome, so if you know someone who has sung with us in the past, please pass on this information to them.

The banquet is a fun, sometimes outrageous, soiree with delicious food and great entertainment. Expect songs, skits, poems and other side-show-worthy attractions - all from the talents of YOU, our members! New members from this season 2022-2023 are encouraged to prepare something together, too. (For communication purposes, a group of the new members will be identified on Harmonysite. Jennifer Barwood will help lead the new members group.) Some of us like to dress up, but that is entirely up to you.

Please contact Cari Lyn Stanton ( if you want to be part of the entertainment. She will be scheduling rehearsal time with our accompanist for the evening of Monday June 12th, 6-9 pm. at Community of Christ Church. The accompanist will have a folder of our music for this term, but if you are using other music, please provide a copy in advance of rehearsal and give to Cari Lyn or Gayle. If you need something else from our music library, contact Janis Brew (
