Concert Time

This week promises to be a big one for the CICB. Thanks for all your work in preparation for these important events. As Tiffany mentioned in her e-mail, it’s amazing the amount of music the band has put together and is playing at a very high level.

Bill recorded the Irish concert and I finally had a chance to audit it, great performance all! I could even hear the singing. Good memories from a great concert.

Tell your ‘framily’ about the big concerts this week. Spread the good word! It’s going to be something special. Just a reminder: take care of your health the day of and night before these big performances.

You will need to bring stands for Sunday. I would encourage you to also bring a stand to the POPS concert as well as we’ll need extras that night for jazz band, Dixie combo et al.
