I wanted to let you all know how pleased I was with the concert last night and that I thought the band sounded wonderful in that beautiful acoustic. It always feels rushed to get our Christmas program together but it came off so well and I received many complimentary comments from audience members after the concert. Thank you one and all for your music and for your commitment to the group and for your friendship. It’s a great club to belong to! Hope to see you all next week at the supper…6:30 pm at Steak and Stein, Young Street, Halifax, Tuesday Dec. 11. Guests are welcome.
We will be having our dress rehearsal tomorrow night, Monday, Dec. 3rd at 6:30 pm at the West band room. The running order will be the actual concert program order which I am including below.
After the rehearsal, we will need to load some vehicles with percussion equipment so I would ask that all percussionists please stay to help with this at 8:30.
For Tuesday, the set up in the church (St Agnes on Mumford Road) is scheduled for 2 pm and we can use any help that people can provide if you are available at that time.
The concert itself is at 7 pm and I’ll ask members to arrive in the church hall for 6:15 for assembly and warm-up. Dress is formal concert black and members are asked to bring your own music stand.
Saxophone Ensemble Prelude Music (optional) Let the Bells Ring Three Songs for Christmas We Three Kings Bugler’s Holiday White Christmas Carol of the Drum Two Duets for Flute and Clarinet (optional) Cherry Tree Carol Christmas a la Big Band Ave Maria Christmas in Killarney
