Time . . .

Despite the quick turn around, we are ready for a rockin’ Pops Concert. I don’t think any of us would have given up a rehearsal or two from the Divine Comedy to have more time to prep the pops concert. I am very proud of each of you for getting this next concert ready so fast. Thank you for your work. I really think it’s going to be fun and special. I’m anxious to share it with the large crowd we are inviting.

Keep practicing and listening to original recordings of our tunes. Take some time with ‘Extra, Extra’ to eliminate wrong notes. Consider it an ‘investment’ in the commission. Also, please add a fall on the last note of Led Zeppelin.

In lasst week’s post I gave some ideas for those still wondering what rock attire to wear at the Pops. Here are some additional ideas: jean jacket, hat, temporary tattoos. And a lot of it is about attitude. Have fun with it, let your inner rock star shine!

Here is the order for dress rehearsal this Tuesday and the Pops on the 14th:

PINBALL WIZARD
