December 8th – Chapel Hill

Just a reminder to all that we’re playing at Chapel Hill Residence, 2305 Page Road, Orleans, Ont this coming Tuesday. Downbeat is at 7:00 pm. Please remember to bring your own music stands and wear your band shirts, black pants and shoes. Section Leaders it will be ½ band so please let your members know who will be playing. I will contact Section Leaders first if weather becomes an issue or the seniors home cancels on us due to illness. If it’s early enough I will send an email and post changes to our schedule on Facebook. Please note that we have added the four pieces below to our repertoire. If you haven’t already reviewed them, please have a look and ensure you’re familiar with any difficult sections. Hootenanny is a fun piece but has several feature sections.

118 – Sleigh Ride
137 – Hootenanny
278 – Ol’ Blue Eyes
306 – Tony Bennett Unplugged

I’ve added a link to something I thought we could try next year…. Do you notice that the soloist never turns to look at his section while he is playing? I wonder if this feature piece would affect our insurance costs?
