lot's o' important stuff

Great rehearsal on Tuesday. Everyone found it okay, we were able to start on time and get a lot done. I was really impressed with how many came with their Superstar parts edited and ready to go. That saved a lot of time on this. Thank you!

 

For the last 3 rehearsals, the jazz band will be rehearsing from 6-7 in the band room for lack of other space. Feel free to set up and be seated around the jazzers so we can make a quick change.

 

Thank you so much for your quick work tearing down. Just a bit over 5 minutes and we were done. We will have to do that each night. I would ask those of you who helped put the room back in order last Tuesday to keep doing your same job after every rehearsal, or be sure someone does it for you.

 

The JP set up is:

Row 1 =  12 + 8 (chaires + stands)

Row 2 = 8 + 6

Row 3 = 11 + 5

Row 4 2 + 2

 

Practice room 1 (nearest door) = 5 + 4

Practice 2 = 4 + 3

Practice 3 = 3 + 2

Practice 4 = 2 + 2

 

Stack and rack our chairs

 

Help percussion

 

Put the horn cases from the floor back to the top side riser

 

Everyone out asap.

 

As of now the order of the concert will be:

Planet Krypton (great job on this Chris! Thanks for doing it)

That’s Entertainment

Bella’s Lullaby

Hollywood Milestones

3 tunes from jazz band

Fiddler

Impossible Dream

JCS

 

We will rehearse in this order – except starting with JCS and going back to the beginning.

 

Remember to tell your section leader if you can make the Sunday May 20 concert in Rosemount at 4p.
