Hello MSW Friends!

One week from today, September 14, we gather again to rehearse at 7:30 PM at Edina High School. Prior to rehearsal, the MSW board will meet at 6:30 PM. All members are welcome to attend.

There have been a few questions regarding our COVID protocol and the definition of “fully vaccinated”.  MSW Covid Protocol remains the same. This requires all players to be “fully vaccinated” as defined by the CDC. PLEASE NOTE: fully vaccinated does not require boosters, however we strongly encourage members to be best protected by staying up to date with vaccinations, which include getting boosters when eligible. 

If you have since been boosted it is helpful to keep this information up to date with Sara Mize – so please email (mizefamily@mac.com) or text (confidential work phone at 952-380-7560) her with a picture of your updated vaccination card. She will check you off the roster and delete the image.  No digital copies of the images or the roster will be saved. If you’d prefer to share otherwise, please coordinate with Sara.

Our first concert is Sunday, October 16, 3 PM at St. Philip the Deacon in Plymouth. That is two weeks earlier than normal. Please practice before our first rehearsal!  Also, please take a moment to listen to our repertoire and study your parts. (Thank you, Amanda, for providing these links!)

See you soon!
