Rehearsal Notes for October 9 and 11:
Good progress by both bands last week, but we still have a lot to accomplish if we’ll be ready for Nov. 11. You each know what you need to practice to improve how well you play your parts. How about spending 2-3 half-hour practice sessions by next Tuesday on the parts that challenge you? I am certain each of you will benefit by doing just that. The quality of our performance Nov. 11 depends heavily on your individual preparation. Please don’t expect someone else to carry your load and theirs.
Larry and I thank you in advance for pushing yourself.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO WEAR YOUR NAME TAGS, AND THEN START LEARNING OTHERS' NAMES!
