News and Notes

Friends,

It was so good to be with you last night making music. You're sounding great and I'm excited about the Pops! What fun. As always, get the word out and maybe we can pack the JP auditorium. 

I'd like to apologize for the somewhat awkward environment I created at the beginning of rehearsal yesterday. I was under the impression that you had been informed of my mother's passing via an e-mail blast or rehearsal announcement. Thank you for allowing me the indulgence to speak about my mom a bit. She truly was one of your biggest fans. And thank you to the members that sent the bouquet for the service.

This Tuesday is our dress rehearsal. We will run all our music straight thru with our emcees. The order of the concert is:

Planet Krypton

That's Entertainment

Bella's Theme

Hollywood Milestones

(3 jazz band charts)

Fiddler on the Roof

The Impossible Dream

Jesus Christ Superstar (with cut) 

After that we will have one rehearsal for the Rosemount gig on Sunday May 20 at 4p at Rosemount HS. Our program will consist of:

Fanfare for the Third Planet

Fiddler on the Roof

Diversion

Jesus Christ Superstar

Saturn, the Ringed Planet

Then just 2.5 rehearsals before the summer series! The summer line up will be:

Planet Krypton

Fanfare for the Third Planet

Saturn

Lassus Trombone

Woodwind Polka

That's Entertainment

Hollywood Milestones

Fiddler on the Roof

Bella's Lullaby

Jesus Christ Superstar (with cut)

(there will be no ensemble break)

That should make for an hour concert - should be a ton of fun. If we have time, its possible we could add Curtain Call in as the encore. The rest of the music in your folder will be turned in soon.
