Great rehearsal! We made progress in structuring the improv section of Reflexão and tightened up some style and rhythms in Basin Street. Look forward to Friday this week: a run-through of the whole set for MMEA.
The group did some very nice expressive playing today in Prospect and started to put together the fourth movement of the Andrew Boysen Symphony no. 4. The next pep band is Tuesday, January 27, and students who did not attend the first one should plan to attend this one.
After a strong start and some great reading in the EE book, the group struggled to maintain momentum at the end of class. We're getting to some more challenging music, and students will need to make sure they are working hard on their individual parts for the concert pieces so that class time can be used effectively.
