For our dress rehearsal tomorrow night (Monday, May 6): 1) This will be in the band room at the West and will run from 6 to 7:30. Please be ready for a 6 pm downbeat.
2) We will only be rehearsing Timepiece and Solemn Fugue along with various chorales for warm-up so please bring Assorted, More Assorted and Son of Assorted for that.
3) Please bring a music stand for this rehearsal as a large number of our stands have been loaned to the Kiwanis Festival for band classes this week.
4) Percussion-please note that there will be no snare drum, suspended cymbal or crash cymbals at the rehearsal (again because of equipment being lent to the festival). The incomplete chimes and marimba will be at the rehearsal in place of the xylophone and good chimes.
