Hi Elgin Encores,
To clarify, the band social is next Tuesday evening (17 April). Jackie has sent a separate email with details – please RSVP to her.
The community concert is at Oakpark Residence on Wednesday 25 April (see below for more detail).
We’re nearly there! In a couple of days we will be sharing our musical accomplishments this term, and they certainly are great! See below for concert logistics.
Trolls – practise at quarter=135. Esp. flutes and bassline.
Moment/Beatles – dynamics, more trombones/tenors in soli sections (can still barely hear trbs…play out!)
*review anchors (where many sections play the same rhythm like the 3 quarter notes)
*review the tempo change to ¾
*trumpets: care to avoid rushing in fast sections. Practise to note where this happens so that you are conscious of it.
*upper woodwinds/altos – play through both halves of the piece without stopping to note areas where rhythm rushes or where you are thrown off, but only mark in notes once arrived at the rests in the middle.
Band notes are posted on the website at: https://ottawanewhorizons.com/for-members/band-notes/
