A FEW THINGS TO NOTE (please read carefully):

Be sure to arrive in plenty of time for picking up music, nametags, etc. Feel free to come early and walk around campus some. This is surely a wonderful place to experience the closeness of God!

You will stay, eat, sleep and spend time together in the conference center. See the map for more information. All rehearsals except men’s sectionals and one instrumental sectional will be in Hollifield Hall. The sectionals will be held on the bottom floor of the conference center as well as our world-class dining experiences.

When you arrive, you will find your key, if you are spending the night, on the table in the lobby of the conference center (across from Hollifield Hall).

You will pick up your choral folder (if not using a tablet) and name tag along with ordering your attire in Hollifield Hall. There will likely be an orchestra rehearsal going on, so please be quiet as you interact and then depart the hall when you have completed your tasks there.

If you are in the orchestra, be sure to have all your music downloaded/printed before arriving unless you have worked out other arrangements. Don’t forget to bring your music stands.

Choir members using tablets should have their music ready to go.

Everyone should be familiar with the songs before arriving. Our 1:45 rehearsal will be singing some of them with orchestra before we have time to really work on them. This will give us the experience of enjoying the sound of choir and orchestra together before much of the orchestra departs later in the afternoon.

I have included the schedule once again below for your reference.

Be ready to share your life verse and its meaning to you.

Be thankful that our food has no bad calories while at Caraway. It is all blessed and good.

I am thankful for each of you and look forward to our days together!!!! To God be the glory!

1 thought on “Retreat!

  1. Hi everyone. Anyone with Tunic or Tie questions please see me and/or Jessica inside Holifiled Hall at a table for Attire immediately before or immediately after all rehearsals. All new members should come and give size and purchase for our attire. Tunics and ties will be ordered the week after Retreat, so it is up to each of you to confirm you are taken care of regarding attire with Becky or Jessica. If you are not at the Retreat and you are a new person, it is up to you to contact me at 336-213-5252 or ncmarshallfamily@gmail.com. I am looking forward to a great retreat and seeing long term, dear friends again – and make some new ones!

    Becky Marshall
