Good evening Rideau Cadences,
This week traffic was terrible and we had a lot of absences, but we persevered and made huge tracks on Frozen (in the snow, of course!). Anything is possible and we have lots of time left to hone our concert pieces. What will they be? We decide next week…
At the end of the rehearsal, we will cast votes on what we want to play – this guides my decision in letting me know what the band feels and prefers. You may vote as many times as you like, but for each piece you vote for, it is at the expense of another piece.
We are progressing so well and barring any unforeseen apocalyptic snowstorm, we will sound great with our our entire RC team together for the upcoming weeks as we prepare for our December show.
