It's been so long since I've seen you!!!

Aloha Ladies!
I hope you've had an awesome two weeks since I've seen you.  I'm looking forward to our rehearsal this Sunday at our usual 6:30pm time.  YAY!

Please make sure you know O Aula Nobilis, El Vito, Zion's Walls and Psalm 23 so we can really make music together instead of pound parts.
