The Carnegie Choir Google Group

Choir members keep in touch by using one Private Google Group email address: 

First of all, if you are not already receiving Choir email,
send your name and preferred email address to Geoffrey Baird,
the choir leader, and we'll arrange to add you to the group.

How it works:

When you send a NEW email to this group address, ALL choir members will get your message. Simple! (Save the address in your contacts) It's like an automatic ' CC', if you will.

When you REPLY to any message FROM the group address, all members will receive that reply. 
(You should receive a confirmation copy of the message you sent)

All NEW and REPLY messages sent via the Group address will be marked clearly in the subject field of the email: [Carnegie Choir Google Group]

Make sure the address you are writing FROM is the same one we registered for you on the group, otherwise your email may be knocked back. This a private email group and only addresses registered with the Carnegie Google group can post messages and receive forwarded email. Chat to Geoffrey if you are confused (see Contact above)

NB: When changing the topic of a conversation,
PLEASE change or delete the old SUBJECT of the email (especially if it is misleading!
Why?   A couple of times now, a very old message with the subject "Rehearsal cancelled tonight" was forwarded early on a Wednesday as a message about something else altogether, and we lost a few singers that night who thought the message was a new one!

You can make a PERSONAL REPLY to a message sent to the Google group.
In the ‘from field’ (showing who it was who wrote to you) you should see something like this: "; on behalf of;"
So if you don't have that person's address on file already, you can extract the address from there. Fred will be happy to hear from you!

Geoffrey uses the Google Group address for most all choir email.
(news of new recordings and sheet music and what to practice for next week etc)

Do you have more than one email address?
We can add more than one authorised address for you. Just let me know. (Recently, a choir member tried to write to the new choir address from a different email address than the address we had registered for them and the message was knocked back.)
If you think this is something you are likely to do in the future (eg a quick emergency email from your work computer) I can register the other address for you as well.

Changing your email address?
Write to or Geoffrey / one of the committee.
