Jazz Band

  • sectionals on Trouble in TaipeiSister Sadie, and On Green Dolphin Street
  • combo time

Symphonic Band

SB had a great rehearsal today, working through some of the swing rhythms in Basin Street Barbeque and spending some time on the open section of Reflexão e Dança.

Students should be working hard on their chamber music for class performances (and possibly Solo and Ensemble) after winter break.

Concert Band

After reading through a new tune of mine for pep band, the band also read David Holsinger's The Gathering of the Ranks at Hebron. His writing is great because it is both interesting to listen to and fun for every section of the band to play.

Solo and Ensemble is only a few weeks away! Student chamber groups will be performing at SCPA on Thursday, January 8, between 5:00 and 8:00 pm. Each group (or soloist) will have a 15 minute slot in which to perform and then receive verbal feedback from a judge.
