An update - 8/24/10

1.  A former (and founding) member of the group, Hans Horn, tells us of a bass bone opening with a group up the peninsula.  They rehearse on Tuesday nights in Palo Alto (Cubberly Community Center), 7PM-9PM.  The group is led by Lori Stotko, who plays trombone herself and piano. 

2.  We just received another invitation for Christmas in the Park.  Feel free to look at the Hickeys link and help us choose some new tunes this year (and anything else that looks interesting to you):

3.  We will be deciding on how many voices our new music will be over the next few rehearsals, so if 100 players show up, we'll find tunes with 100 parts (O.K., an exagerration????)

4.  The CD of our concert, hopefully, should be available within the next week or two.  Those of you out of town who'd like a copy, let us know your address.

5.  Enjoy the Trombones de Costa Rico (yes, another arrangement is on the way) playing a straight version of Bach's Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor.
