Hello All!

I am excited to see some familiar faces tomorrow along with some new faces, too. I think we are going to have a great session – Welcome!

Below, you will find a rough sketch of a rehearsal schedule.  This is meant to be just a guideline — you can expect that some things won’t go quite as planned. 🙂 I will try to send out a schedule similar to this one each week, but please be patient if I miss a week or send it out last minute.
(NOTE: These announcements will also be posted on the NHBFV.com website, under “For NH Band Musicians / Announcements”. Depending on when they get to our webmaster, they might be posted before the given rehearsal or after… but they will all be there for you to easily look back at in the future.)

Also below is a link to sheet music parts and recordings to play along with or study.

As always, please email me if you have any questions!  I will get back to you just as quickly as I can.
Warm Regards,
— Jenny Leist
