Upcoming Band Performances
Lessons are off to a great start! We will be starting group sectionals shortly. Sectional rehearsals will take place on Thursday and Friday in the late afternoon/early evening. We will be checking with students over the next week or two to determine the best possible times.
We are also starting to think ahead to potential performances. As everyone knows, our plans have to be flexible as the schools we serve do not yet allow us to hold any in school activities.
On the Bookstore page you will find a selection of band pieces which we will be practicing as part of our lessons. The goal will be to be ready to perform a concert as soon as we are allowed. We are also hopeful that a spring outdoor activity might be possible (with the emphasis on might). If so, we are currently looking at participation in a local parade with our new marching band 'THE ADVENTURERS".
Looking ahead to Christmas, we are planning to release a Christmas CD for each school
(and a separate one for our independent students). The CD will be a regular CD AND ALSO BE AVAILABLE IN VIRTUAL FORM AS MP3 files. For selected students we will also feature performances on our VIRTUAL CONCERT HALL. Plans are also being made for group performances via the ACAPELLA app, and possibly live (socially distanced) performances. More details will follow. Christmas music is now on the BOOKSTORE page. We will begin practicing for our Christmas performance this week.
