HCB Rehearsal Notes Tuesday March 22

Hi all and welcome back to the remainder of the 2021-22 Halifax Concert Band season (Spring Version).
Assembly 6:30 pm Bella Rose Theatre
I am really pleased to be joining you again to resume rehearsals and to get back to the pleasure of music-making together and look forward to working together to rehearse and perform a fantastic set of music for our Spring Finale concert!! (date TBA).
As Becky has mentioned in the last email that Bob sent to the membership, we have set Tuesday’s rehearsal to come back together in two smaller groups to rehearse simultaneously in two separate spaces. This will allow for some better distancing and safer sizes for now. Mark Cuming and I will be conducting these two groups and members will be placed into either the *Band Room Group* or the *Stage Group.* (see below). Group selections are based solely on equal instrumentation and balance or logistical factors.
Let’s all meet together at 6:30 pm for an assembly in the audience seating of the Bella Rose Theatre to go over the plan for the evening’s agenda, which I am providing in advance.
*6:30 Assembly* *6:45 Rehearsal (Part 1) in assigned group and place* *7:30 Five minute break* *7:35 Rehearsal (Part 2) in same assigned group and place* *8:30 Dismissal * Mark and I will be rehearsing each group for an hour and then trading groups and will be selecting repertoire from the following set of pieces.
*Dave’s List* Three Ayres from Gloucester Sea Songs A Childhood Remembered Curtain Call
*Mark’s list* We Want It All Star Trek In Their Honor (new) Jump In The Line
