Dates to remember:

  • Thursday, November 14, after practice, social outing at the Colonnade Restaurant, 2140 Carling Ave.

The clinician for Percussion, Alec Joly Pavelich, has obtained a position with the Southbank Symphonia in London England. Congratulations Alec.

Put Air for Band on the back burner, and keep practicing the following from the method book, Tradition of Excellence Book 2 : pages 15, 42, 43. Also look at #43, 44, 87, 100, 153
