Next Rehearsal

Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at 6:30 in the bandroom at Halifax West High School

Greetings, earthlings.

In this rehearsal, after warm-up is complete, I'll work on the American Folk Rhapsody #3, starting at 152 and proceeding to the end. After that is done, we'll play it from the top. Next up should be the Suite in Eb. There will be stuff to be done at letter B in the first movement. By the way, the brass blend was beautiful in this movement the other night. We should proceed to Loch Lomond after the Holst. We'll work on balance and tempo and phrasing mostly, especially from the beginning to 28, which sets up the entire piece, really. By this point, it will be about 7:55. For the rest of the rehearsal, we will play Hocus Pocus, Thunderbirds and one other tune, undetermined at this time, but will be denounced at the rehearsal.

Thanks, all.
