I was introduced to the congregation today as the new choir director. I was teasing one congregation member that there was now a "empty seat" in the bass section (my chair) that needed to be filled. To my surprise, he said that he would be willing to join us! Yeah! Now we have 5 sopranos, 3 altos, 3 tenors, and now, once again, 3 basses.
Got a chromatic tuner for Christmas with new piano tuning tools. I use to tune with just a pitch fork (middle C). With the new tuner, I was able to finish under 3 hours! That's fast for me. Great little device, Has a multi-function metronome as well.
