AGM -- excellent attendance and... Doughnuts!

Drew brought Doughnuts!

The first rehearsal of the Stairwell Carollers Fall 2015 singing season was a doughnut feasting success!

Our AGM (annual general meeting) started with choir Commitee President, Diane Fraser, with her trademark short and sweet welcome to everyone and an acceptance of the minutes of the last meeting.

And Drew (tenor) surprised us with Artisinal Doughnuts from Suzy Q in Hintonberg! Yum.

Our director, Pierre, continued with good news about our online presence. Our website, which Pierre created and manages, is well maintained by Team Maggie (soprano), with help from Drew (tenor) and Kelly (alto) on the lyrics pages.

Our YouTube numbers are up. Considering that we don't sing naked, have a hamster on a piano or a baby monkey riding on a pig, we do pretty well.

@StairwellChoir on Twitter is very successful in getting the news out about concerts and our new vids and blog posts. It can be a big time eater too if you let it. All the choral news that's fit to tweet -- too tempting

Our Facebook page is hub for blog posts, news, comments and tweets -- please like us!

And, we are super pumped for our upcoming CD, O magnum mysterium coming out this October. Hit the link for a sneak peek! For all our CDs ( also available as MP3s ) click here.

After the AGM, we spent the next hour and a half singing through seven Christmas songs. Whew!

All done, we trotted off to The Clocktower Brew Pub. As with choir rehearsal, attendance was healthy. Brown Beers and munchies all round.

We aren't called the "Eatwell Carollers" for nothing.
