Next Performance

The next Performance is on stage at the Bella Rose Arts Centre on Tuesday April 29 (details below)

Next Rehearsal

The next rehearsal is on Tuesday May 6 at 6:30 in the music room at Halifax West.

We will rehearse Doctor Who (some balance adjustments needed), World of Warcraft (just a review needed), Fantasia in G Major (the part from G to I, plus the ending for balance), Les Miserables (especially that area through 142 to 184) and Lord of the Rings.

The details on the April 29 show are as follows:

Show is at 7:00, so be there at 6:30. Meet in the band room. Wear the band shirt that night. We’ll go into the auditorium at 6:55 and listen to the high school band. You may leave your instruments in the band room, but don’t leave anything else of value in there. At the intermission we will need to reset the stage (for us) which would likely take 10 minutes. After that is complete we will take our places on the stage. We will tune up on stage, then play these tunes:

  1. Irish Rhapsody
  2. Roar
  3. Star Trek Through the Ages, and
  4. Prelude and Fugue in Bb Major

After the show, we will give out autographs and then help move the stands and percussion gear back.

Thank-you, everyone.
