Winter isn't Over yet....

Post date: Mar 06, 2013 6:4:7 AM

So, March tiptoed in, just to get the melt started, then it shouted it was here with that winter storm this week. Now, will it go out like a lamb or a lion? And will Easter be just about as white as Christmas was?

For those who somehow missed the clinic with Brent Ghiglione, it was interesting, and gave us a fresh look at how we make the music - not just the notes, but getting the tone warm enough to "bathe in". And, in case you haven't been to the rehearsals since then, that clinic also included rearranging some sections to produce a more blended sound.

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.

Optimist Band Festival:
