First plant your tongue firmly in your cheek, then send the following letter to your General Manager for inclusion in the next monthly newsletter!
I am sorry, but I don’t think we can stay together! I have long been working through my feelings for Saskatoon and now, since I have been offered the chance to run their Transit System, I don’t think it is fair for you to be in a relationship with someone who is not 100% committed to remaining in the Edmonton area.
This really has nothing to do with you! Our time together has been wonderful. I still remember that concert in Vancouver when the explosion during the rehearsal was absolutely in time with the downbeat. I will also remember the absolutely life changing visits to Westlock and Germany with great fondness! Please do not think it has anything to do with those other choirs I have sung with – Cantillon’s Broadway Shows were only a dalliance, and the choirs for the conducting students were just an experiment in additional repretoire.
It’s not that time I spent on the board or the programming committee – they just let me get to know you better. Nor is it that you scared me with the threat of auditions either – we have weathered that storm a few times and come through still speaking to each other.
No, I have found somewhere else to go and I think the only way out is for us to end our relationship. I hope that you will be able to find some additional singers who are perfect for you. I hope that you can forgive me. I would still like to remain friends, if possible, especially if I can go to the UK with you.Sincerely,
