Rehearsal News

The Corvallis Community Band will rehearse once again on Tuesday, February 14, in the band room Linus Pauling Middle School from 7 - 8:30 PM.We’ll continue to work on the repertoire for our Winter Concert on March 21.  The concert is officially titled “Topsy-Turvy: The Music of Edward Elgar & Gilbert & Sullivan”  That’s kind of  mouthful, but it actually works on the poster, designed by Karin Magnuson, one of our bassoonists.  The poster will be on our website as soon as I get it sent to our webmaster and he gets it posted on the site.  You’ll be able to download and print it.  Feel free to post it wherever you think it will attract some interest.
February’s Social Time was enjoyed by those who stayed after rehearsal last week to partake of the food and fellowship. Thanks to the Clarinets for a nice variety of yummy treats.
Have you practiced this week?  There’s still time before Tuesday’s rehearsal.  Treat your Valentines with a rousing version of Pineapple Poll (at least that’s the one that requires the most woodshedding for me!)  
Again, I strongly encourage everyone to make a copy of the Mikado Selections, cut it apart, and reassemble the sections in the order in which we will play them. It doesn’t take long, and it will save you a lot of anxiety and page shuffling.
See you Tuesday,
