A month ago I was a bit concerned about starting the Summer Series off with back to back concerts at Como and Harriet... but your two opening performances turned out to be fabulous. The crowd at Como may have been the largest and certainly most enthusiastic the CICB has ever had the pleasure of performing for. And to follow it up with such a clean performance the very next night was impressive. After a few weeks off, we are back in the saddle Tuesday, July 7 and I'm truly looking forward to it. Bryant Square Park is our neighborhood performance in an intimate setting. Be sure to invite your Uptown area friends.
Note the earlier than usual schedule:
5:30 Set Up/Brass Band rehearsal
6:00 CICB warm up/tune
7:30 Tear Down
We will change up the program a bit:
Parade of the Tall Ships
Nearer My God
At a Dixieland Jazz Funeral
West Side Story
If the crowd asks for one, we WILL play an encore after this concert - In The Mood.
Hope you are all well and enjoying your summer. Happy 4th!
