Announcements and Music for May 2nd

I’d like to welcome Jérémie to GCCB. Jérémie comes to us from EBD and is known to many of us from the Orleans Jazz Band as our baritone sax player. Welcome Jérémie!

I’ve attached the minutes and financial statements from our most recent Executive Meeting to our weekly email. Please note that although detailed in the minutes, our May 2nd performance and social have been ** cancelled **. We will hold a regular rehearsal and BAB in it’s place. Our minutes will be posted on our website as soon as possible.

Upcoming dates of interest:

*** May 2nd – regular rehearsal; social and performance cancelled!
May 16th – Senior’s Home Perley Vets
Jun 4th – Spring Concert, 7 pm
Jun 6th – Senior’s Home Governor’s Walk
Jun 8th – Concert in Park, Navan

The following lists represent the ** tentative ** music orders for our Spring Concert, Road Show and our performance in Navan. Note that these lists are subject to change based on our readiness. We are covering a large volume of music this season. Please take personal responsibility to note the areas that need work by you and invest the time to practice on your own. This will allow us to maximize our remaining rehearsal time and the quality of our performances.
