Good Friday to you all,
Sorry to “intrude” on your solemn meditations and worship on this Holy day. I’m just getting info out at a time between my worship services and rehearsals. When you get to this email for info is not an urgent time dependent concern. Just a few items about our May 14 concert and April 19 rehearsal.
Saturday, May 14 Concert at Fox Valley Lutheran HS auditorium –
The main news hear is that our concert is now at 3:00 instead of 2:00. I could give all kinds of explanations, but that wearies me and would likely weary you as well. I hope the 3:00 pm start time still works for everyone.
Tuesday, April 19 Rehearsal –
A little less sectional time, and more full band rehearsal time
WARM-UP – 6:30
Superior Band book p. 55 #1 and 56 #3 (we’ve done before) / also, chromatic scales – can’t remember the page(s) for these ( I left my book at FVL last Tuesday). I don’t think it will take too much effort to ‘hunt’ down the chromatic scale exercises.
SECTIONALS – 6:40 – 7:20
“Bond . . . James Bond” – as much as can be covered in 35-40 minutes
REHEARSAL – 7:30 – 8:30
“Bond . . . James Bond”
“Deir’ in De”
“The King of Rock N’ Roll”
I think I’m pretty settled on a program order. I’ve decided to surrender my devotion to Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, and I drop “Spanish Flea” from the program. Due to concert length, I may also drop “Komm, Süsser Tod” as well, but I would really rather keep it in. Anyway, I think the rest of our pieces would sound good in this order:
- Highlander Regiment
- Rhythm of the Winds
- Deir’ in De
- Bond . . . James Bond
- Oriental Holiday
- ?? Komm, Süsser Tod ??
- The King of Rock N’ Roll
- The Lord of the Dance
See you Tuesday, and Happy Easter. The Lord is risen!
