Next Rehearsal


The next rehearsal is on Tuesday April 22nd at 6:30 in the music room at Halifax West.

We will play through the material for the April 29 show first. Following those pieces, it’s back to Fantasia in G major. Last time, I noticed a real improvement in the section between H and I. Also impressive was the horn work between G and H. We are starting to get to the point where we can fine tune some of the musical points and not worry as much about the “notes”. Other items for next rehearsal will be a return to Doctor Who 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 help move the stands and percussion gear back.

Thank-you, everyone.
