Hi Elgin Encores,
We will see you on Tuesday for another grand rehearsal. I hope you are all settling well into the month.
Band notes are posted on the website at: https://ottawanewhorizons.com/for-members/band-notes/
Last rehearsal, we looked at hemeola, where two contrasting rhythmic patterns are superimposed (in this case 3/4 time over a two-beat 6 pattern). More on this in warm-ups.
Second term concert date: Sunday 15 April, afternoon time TBD at Woodroffe United Church.
Volunteer concert: Wednesday 25 April, 7:30PM, Oakpark Retirement Residence (2 Valour Dr).
Spring Band concert date: Tuesday 12 June, evening time TBD, at Woodroffe United Church
ORDER OF REHEARSAL
This coming week’s order:
Next week’s order:
I’m a Believer (Sem. 1)
What to bring:
-music stand (especially if you play flute, oboe, and clarinet. Priority of on-site stands go to large instruments like bass and bari sax)
-Essential Elements Book 2 (St. John’s is likely not to be there, but you can share with a bandmate I am sure.)
-Water cloth (to empty water on for brass instruments)
-a pencil (important!)
-term 1 music (eventually) We will combine both term’s music for the extra volunteer show
-Indoor shoes are recommended to leave a good impression.
-Toothbrush opt. (please remember to rinse out your mouth before playing to avoid nutrient+moisture buildup in your instruments…)
