The Riverside Rondos is for progressing beginner and intermediate musicians who wish to refine their skills further. We will play a mix of familiar pieces that allow us to showcase our musicality, and more complex pieces that develop our technical abilities, at level 1.5–2.
Every rehearsal is two hours long plus a short social break, and can be made up of a full band rehearsal for the whole time or a mix of full band rehearsal and one-hour instrument-specific clinics or sectional groupings. At the end-of-session concert, the band performs 4 pieces, ranging from classical to contemporary.
You will need an instrument, a pencil and a music stand. If you don’t have an instrument, St. John’s Music (Mike Pollard) can assist you in buying or renting.
Instrument choices: Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium/Baritone, Tuba, Electric Bass Guitar, Percussion (snare, bass, concert bells, auxiliary percussion).
