Did you miss our launch event last Thursday? Don't worry! We will continue to rehearse every Thursday for the rest of the term! 🎉🥳

We are located in V01 (not V1!!) at 18-20 on Thursdays. Everyone is warmly welcome! ❤️

On Thursday, we will work a little more with voices, and learn the nice version of Punchen kommer! 🥂 If you want to be one of those smug bastards who start singing voices at a gasque, this is the rehearsal for you! 😍

See you there! 🐩 ❤️

GUDAR first meeting

Hi @ChapterInfo!

Have you ever wondered what stupid things they were up to at the chapter 20 years ago? Or have you always wondered why Konglig Datasektionen is Konglig and not Kunglig? Then maybe you'd be interested in GUDAR (Gamla Uvar på Datasektionen med Anrika Redogörelser). It is the new committee for the Chapter's ancient history!

This Wednesday (17/4) 17.30 we have our first official meeting in E34! So if you have any historical mission you are eager to work with or if you're just interested then join us! The meeting will take somewhere around an hour so that we'll be able to make it for the ticket release for METAspexet 2024. Hope to see you there!

Open rehearsal with Scala!

Are you curious about singing in a choir? 🎶 Or have you been singing since you were five and want to find somewhere to do that in the chapter? Your wait is finally over! 🎉

On 11 April at 6pm, Scala will have an open rehearsal where all chapter members can come and sing!

Scala is the CS chapter's very own choir, and we sing together at the level you are every Thursday! We usually rehearse a few songs each semester, and those who want to (a subset) also sometimes have performances.

The idea is that it is an opportunity to relax and think about something other than your studies for a while. No experience is required! You don't need to know your part, you don't need to be able to read music, you just need to have the will to sing together. ❤️

What will happen is first a warm-up, where we do some easy singing exercises, and then we divide into our parts to practice a song. If you don't know which part you are, you'll come with me and we'll find out. Then when we have rehearsed for a while, we gather again and sing the song together. If we have time, we take another song.

Then we will continue to rehearse every Thursday in roughly the same way. But please come on the 11th if you are new to get as good an introduction as possible.

The room we have this year is V01 (not V1, it's two different rooms!).

Hope to see you there! Toodles 🐩

tl:dr: Come and sing the 11th of april at 6pm in V01! Come on, it'll be fun!🥳🦜
