Rehearsal Notes Tuesday Dec 6 and Concert line up

Hi all,
Here is the order of pieces for Tuesday’s rehearsal, along with the Dec 13th Concert Program. As you can see, I have not included The Nightmare Before Christmas in the concert because the piece is not ready for performance yet. We will leave it in the folder for more rehearsal in the new year and aim for a performance of that in the future.
A reminder that we have a dress rehearsal on Monday, December 12th at 6:30 in the Halifax West Band room with equipment loading directly after.
Details for the concert are as follows 1) Set-up at St. Agnes (for available volunteers) Dec 13th in the afternoon (time TBA) 2) Concert meeting time for all members at 6:15 pm in the church hall 3) Warm-up and tuning at 6:50 in the church. Concert begins at 7 pm. Prelude Brass Quintet music at 6:30 3) Everyone please bring a music stand for the concert (except flute, oboe, clarinet and percussion) 4) Dress is formal black concert dress (appropriate Christmas accessories welcomed) 5) Please encourage family and friends to attend
