Upcoming concert/concerns

Hi Folks
Many of you have played shows, and if you can picture having opening day in a week and you still haven't run through the play with all of the main actors, that's about where we are for our annual concert.  As this is the smallest performing group we've for our summer concert and every player is crucial, we strongly urge your presence this Thursday to run through the  program. Next Thursday is dress rehearsal and the concert. The band room will be open this Thursday at 7:15 p.m. and downbeat at 7:30.  Most likely, as in the past, the concert will be recorded and you will be taking home a copy of it.  As we'd love the recording to show our best playing we request you woodshed your more challenging sections of the program to obtain our best performance.  We will put our performance folders together at this week's rehearsal and you should be able to take the book home to practice. 
Tentative Program
Echoe Song
Ecce Veniet dies illa
Verbum Caro Factus Est
Canzona Primi Toni
Night In Tunisia

Medley from "The Music Man" (Vernon Miyata arrangement)
As the Mercury News and Chronicle have accepted our notice for the first time, we should have a good turnout.
Let's knock 'em dead!
See you Thursday (tonight!)

4 rehearsals left!

We have a wonderful program planned for our formal concert on the 30th, we need to spend our remaining time polishing the pieces.  From Sousa to Showtunes to Salsa to Bach, we have it all.  

Please plan on attending this Thursday to help prepare for  one of the highlights of our year.  Our notice was just accepted by S.F. Gate, managed by the San Francisco Chronicle, so we want to put our best foot forward!  

The turnout this week will determine what pieces we play.

See you Thursday!
