Begin the Ballet

What fun seeing you all again last Tuesday. The sight-reading session when quite well. Thanks to everyone that helped make it happen.

Our Night at the Ballet concert will be Tuesday, March 8. I think it will be a special night. Remember we are looking for volunteers from the band to introduce the pieces - one member per piece. I have two volunteers so far, looking for two more. If you are interested, drop me an e-mail or let me know this Tuesday night. 

Here are some links to recordings you might enjoy in preparation. Have fun listening and practicing. I look forward to seeing you Tuesday, let me know if you have any questions or ideas.
