FAQ

What should I wear in the reunion concert?

If you still have Slav concert wear from your time in the chorus, please bring that. If not, a simple black bottom (either pants or a long skirt) and a plain white (or embroidered) top will be just fine. (If you have extras of anything, and don’t mind sharing with friends, please feel free to bring them along.)

Can I still take advantage of block hotel rates?

How do I order reunion merchandise?

T-shirts and other merchandise will be available at reunion. Pre-order forms will be sent out via email shortly, and a link will be posted to the website. Stay tuned! 

Can my friends and I perform a small group at reunion?

We will have room for 5 small groups of alumnae in the set list. If people are interested in singing a small group, they must have members confirmed already. If possible, they should send along a recording of them singing beforehand so we can make as many decisions as possible before reunion. If no recording is submitted beforehand, auditions for small groups will be held from 2:30 – 3:30 on Saturday, April 6th. Decisions about which groups will be in the concert will then be made later that afternoon. And please remember that there will be ample time for informal group singing, so everyone will have a chance to do their favorite songs whether or not they make it into the final performance! If you’d like to sing in a small group, please submit your requests by email to anna.mcneil@yale.edu by Sunday, March 10th.

Can I sing in multiple small groups in the reunion concert?

Sorry, no. We received so much interest in small groups that we won’t even be able to accommodate everyone as it is. We ask that everyone be understanding as we try to give everyone an opportunity to share their favorite songs and we apologize that time constraints mean that every small group cannot perform.

Where can I find sheet music for the songs we will be performing?

We have set up a folder that includes all the recordings and sheet music for the songs we will be performing this year! Please take some time before the reunion to prepare your part as best you can so that rehearsal time can proceed as efficiently as possible.

Will childcare be provided?

Yes! There will be childcare available during rehearsal times on Saturday and dinners on Friday and Saturday. None will be provided during the Sunday morning dress rehearsal or during the concert. Please let us know if you have questions or this might pose a problem for you.

What if I have more questions?

As always, email slavs.50th.reunion@gmail.com and we’ll reply as soon as possible. (And, if your question is of general interest, it may inspire us to update the FAQ!)
