February Blahs ...

Hopefully the weather will stay relatively nice for a couple more weeks - it's been a relief to be out of the deep freeze. Hope you can get out to appreciate real wintry landscape - when the sun shines on all that white, it seems to make everything seem a little nicer.
It's been great to see a few new faces - welcome to the group!
If you have some ideas for fun social activities, please let us know.
And, since some of their members been nice enough to help fill in, check the calendar for a warm-sounding event coming up with the Pile o/Bones Brass Band this coming Sunday, February 17.
Clinic night: Brent Ghiglione is working with us on the festival pieces tonight, February 13th, during our regular rehearsal times. Since a fresh perspective on a piece can make it sound even better, please make every effort to be there on time to make the most of this opportunity.
