Thank you, thank you, thank you! This part of the season always makes me a tiny bit sad: most of our rehearsing is behind us. We still have a few, interspersed with concerts, but it will be largely running things, with some spot-rehearsing as needed. See, my favourite part of making music is the rehearsing. I love discovering the inner workings of the piece and finding ways to make the music interesting and fun. That’s where my passion really lies. Of course, there’s tremendous value in getting out into the world and sharing what we’ve worked on – I just don’t find it’s the part that gets me out of bed in the morning. Having said that, we’re so ready! You’ve put in so much work this summer – our repertoire is REALLY hard! I think we have a concert that’s really going to wow them! It’s wowed me. I am so proud of how far we’ve come – you are all rock stars! So, without further ado, on to the business at hand.
Our first concert takes place at: Lindenwoods Terrace – 490 Lindenwood Drive East.
There is parking available across the street. The lot on the same side as the building is pretty small.
Dress is BLACK BOTTOMS and Millennium t-shirt (forest green short-sleeve shirt or black short-sleeve shirt).
Please make every effort to be there for 6:30 pm. There are a lot of us, so the band shuffle will take longer than usual! Warm-up begins at 6:55 pm, and our first piece will begin promptly at 7:00 pm.
This is the Place with Posts, so if we’re playing inside, they will need to be taken into consideration when it comes to seating – we will likely be spread quite widely. If the weather is fine and not too hot, (i.e. safe for the residents), we may play outside under the pergola, in which case, we’ll be narrow and deep in terms of our seating. Either is possible, so please bring your clothespins, plexiglass, or whatever music securing devices you have at your disposal, but don’t be disappointed if they set us up indoors.
Concert order is:
F Concert Scale
Bb Concert Scale
22 – The Stripper
70 – The Maple Leaf Forever
66 – Arctic Fire
69 – City of Dreams
44 – Glee Showstoppers
7 – Swing the Mood
I will be posting later in the week about the Victoria Beach details, so expect more information to come your way over the weekend.
Let’s have a fantastic time!
See you on Wednesday!
