Thanks for your good work this past Tuesday. Unreal how good you are sounding. Tone and Intonation continue to improve and the attendance has been good. I'm looking forward to this Tuesday night and our season opener on Oct 24. The theme is CHESTNUTS, gems of the wind band repertoire.
Thank you for your understanding of the Jefferson lighting situation. I appreciate your willingness to accept the challenge. Remember to bring stand/reading lights. Even the miner style ones you wear on a headband! And feel free to bring an old lamp or whatever you can think of to help you see your music and light up our space.
Another ask: we need percussion! We have 3 core members at this point. We need 5 for this concert cycle plus another two ringers to pull off Incantation. If you know of someone, direct them to our website and let membership chair Shawn and section leader Margie know. (Margie will probably bake you a batch of her famous brownies!). If we are unable to find help, consider volunteering to play a percussion instrument on one of our pieces.
See you this Tuesday. Please come early to help set up, warm up, tune and prepare for a successful concert. Let your section leader know if you are going to be absent/late. Rehearsal etiquette reminder: our of respect for your teammates, no cel phone usage other than for a tuner and keep talking to a minimum. Thanks for your cooperation.
