Hey guys, I hope y’all are having an awesome Thanksgiving break. Rest, relaxation, (hopefully not too much studying), and lots of food for all of you!
But right after Thanksgiving break, make space in your planners and calendars for the night of December 5, cause that’ll be the night of the Mental Notes’s Fall Concert: Mental Notes Through the Ages.
This event will be taking place at 8 pm in Bloomberg’s auditorium.
Be there or be square!
—or at least miss a heck of an entertaining night.

First off, we’d like to say “Thank you so much!” to everyone who came out to the Baltimore Night of the Arts at the BMA. We really enjoyed seeing everyone there and thank you all so much for your comments afterwards!
Next on our agenda, there’s O-Show on Wednesday night. That’s right this Wednesday night on the first day of classes. You’ll get to see a brief and further showcase of our painfully sexy fun and our painfully sexy abilities (singing abilities that is) on stage before heading to the Glass Pav to sign up for auditions.
That right! Auditions!
So head on over to the Glass Pavilion in Levering right after O-Show and find us to sign up. We’ll be the amazingly attractive people in Hawaiians, can’t miss us! (If you do miss us at the Glass Pav, we’ll also be at the SAC fair on Friday! You can sign up there too!)
Auditions will be held on Friday and Saturday.
Friday: 6-midnight, Shaffer 202
Saturday: 9am-1pm, Glass Pav
1pm-5pm, SDS Room
5pm-midnight, Shaffer 202
Don’t know your voice part? No worries! We’ll give you a free voice diagnostic.
All you need for your audition is:
1) Your sexy self
2) A solo for you to sing—it can be about 1-2 minutes long. A verse and a chorus is usually fine. Just make sure it’s something that shows off your lovely voice~
Call backs will be on Sunday, 9am-midnight, Shaffer 202 :D
See y’all soon!

Hey there, all of you peeping in from the interwebs. Just about two more weeks to go until classes kick up again at Hopkins.
What does that mean, you ask?
Well, for your listening pleasure, us lovely Mental Notes shall be performing at the Baltimore Museum of Art’s ‘Night of the Arts’. This event will kick off from 7:00-9:00 pm on Saturday, August 29th. Where, you ask? The Baltimore Museum of Art! We’ll be performing twice—just in case you miss one of our showings—for your listening and viewing pleasure (or maybe you love us that much and will look for us twice!).
There’s also the O-A Cappella Show on Wednesday, September 2nd (aka the first day of classes) from 8:30-9:00 pm. The show shall be at Shriver Hall. The Mental Notes shall, of course, be there in all of our Hawaiian-clad glory.
Don’t forget to look for us after the O-Show in the Glass Pavilion and sign up for auditions! We look forward to seeing you around!

Oh my goodness it’s been a long time since an update, hasn’t it?!
With the end of the 2008-2009 school year, our Spring season draws to a close—but not without some events and changes!
First off, let’s give a big welcome to our newest member as of Spring 2009 to the internets!
Our newest tenor fairy :) We’re glad to have him.
We also had our AMAZING 15th Anniversary Concert on April 18. Thank you to everyone who attended. If you didn’t get the chance to see it (tsk tsk)—and even if you did, we have the whole concert available on our ‘Media’ page. Check it out!
But with this happy news comes sadness as well. This year we must say congratulations and good-bye to our seniors as they leave us to a bigger and graduated world:
Paolo del Valle
We’ll miss you all dearly.
As for updates to the site, we have added the following goodies for your viewing pleasure: videos from our “painfully sexy” Spring Concert, a new picture, updated the repertoire section, and added our newest member to our ‘members’ section.
See y’all around next year!
*Sean has graduated but is actually staying with us another year as he pursues his Masters at JHU! He just loves us that much :D
