4/22 rehearsal

Thanks to everyone for a great rehearsal last Thursday.  After reading through a few more of the great new charts we've just received, we'll work a bit on Hungarian Dance, Pagaent, and Salsealo this coming Thursday (4/29).
See you then!

The Giants!

1.  Yes, the San Jose Giants have invited us back to play, always a great time.  They want to use us when we're ready. The group agreed to mix the rehearsals up with a barbecue set and our next formal concert, so come join us for the new music that is expected to arrive this week.  We'll also run through the larger voicing antiphonal works if we have enough players. Be ready to rehearse Pagaent and possibly Salsealo, as well as some old favorites.

3. Practice tonight at 7:30.  Be ready to play and have fun!

Our next performance

1. We are currently working on a program of antiphonal works written or arranged for trombone choir by Gabrielli, De Lasso, Palestrina, and others to perform in the San Jose City Hall Rotunda and possibly the Episcopalian or Catholic Cathedrals downtown.  The group has also selected the following pieces to perform:
  • Bach Fugue in C Minor
  • Beethoven's Allegretto Scherzando from the 8th Symphony
  • Salsealo by Vinicio Meza
  • A jazz arrangement of Brahm's Hungarian Dance by Robert Elkjer
  • And Washington Post!
We are in need of mid voices (the less difficult parts) so students are encouraged to attend.

2.  Imagine performing a piece like this in a domed environment instead of a stage like at Columbia University:
Come join us Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. in the Santa Clara High School Bandroom!
