ANNOUNCEMENTS
Concert - We are not having our usual Wednesday rehearsal this week. Instead we will have a concert at Methodist Hospital Crane Gardens (http://www.houstonmethodist.org/crain-garden-performance-series)

Concert time: 7:15 pm Call time: 6:45 pm Set up: 6:15 pm Load truck: ~ 5:45 pm

If you are driving in, you will park in TMC Garage #1 to the south. The entrance is at Fannin and Dryden (marked with the green star). To get the gate to lift, you will need to press the green button on the entry machine. It will dispense a plastic yellow coin (called a smart chip). Put the chip in your purse, or pocket, or case, and bring it in with you. After the concert, you can take the smart chip to one of the desks near the Fannin entrance and they will validate it for you.

There is a skybridge in TMC #1 that leads directly to Methodist, and Crane Gardens is not hard to find.

If you are driving a very large, high profile vehicle, you should park in TMC garage 7 (Marked with a red star at the top of the map).

If you want to ride the Metro Rail, your stop is Dryden/TMC.

*Rice Commencement *- Rice will hold its commencement exercises May 15/16. As the commencement band rehearses at the same time as our weekly rehearsal, we will not have HCB rehearsal on May 6 or May 13. Chuck has emailed the commencement band separately with additional information.

Solo/Ensemble competition is fast approaching. As usual we will be asking for volunteers in addition to provisions for the judges. The competition is May 9 at Episcopal High School.
