Over the years we have grown to depend on email to communicate with choristers regarding upcoming events, rehearsal times, and many other matters. However, using email is not particularly efficient, particularly when there are last-minute changes.
Our new Music Director Kathleen McGuire has made a strong recommendation that we use the application TeamApp to organise communications with choristers. This free app is available for smartphones including iPhones, iPads and Android phones, and is also accessible via a desktop browser (at teamapp.com). It was originally developed for use by sporting clubs, but nevertheless has many features which make it useful for other types of organisations such as ours.
While it will not be obligatory for choristers to use TeamApp, we do strongly recommend that you make use of it, as it will become our primary means of communication. Even if you do not have a smartphone, or prefer not to install the app on your device, you can still opt to receive our messages via email if you create a TeamApp account.
We urge you to sign up to TeamApp at www.teamapp.com/signup.
