Please arrive at the Christkindl Market by 1pm this Sunday, December 8th. We will be performing in a heated tent, but please dress for the cold weather. Please wear your blue/slacks band outfit. Drum Set, Jake’s Splash Cymbal, Trevor’s Keyboard, and Andrew’s String Bass, Amp, and Tuba will be needed. A PA System will be provided. Unload equipment on the west side of Arapahoe St, by the tent, between 15th and 16th Streets, across from the clock tower. The location is very close to where we performed for Make Music Denver back in June. Parking will be on our own, so after unloading, please find on street parking, if possible. We will do a sound check from 1:30 until 2pm, followed by our 2 to 4 pm performance. Please be sure all 18 performance tunes are prepared and memorized! We’ll then load up and transfer to Flesher-Hinton Music Store. Dinner will be next store to Flesher-Hinton, at the pizza/pulled pork sandwich place. We’ll then run an abbreviated rehearsal – we can set a goal to be finished by 8pm, if all goes well.
The December dues need to be turned in on Sunday (except for Jake C, Copland & Trevor, who have already paid).
On Sunday, December 15th, we need to have a parent/student trip meeting after our band’s 3:50 to 4:30pm performance at Westminster Elks Lodge. I’ll have pricing, itinerary and payment information for our upcoming CMEA/Broadmoor Hotel, Sacramento Music Festival, and possible NYC performance tour trips. Please plan on having at least one parent attend. We’ll need everyone to have their calendars with them as well. We also need to see which parents can help with the car pool to/from Colorado Springs in January.
Thanks again for Josh taking over as our drummer. You’re doing a great job!! We are still trying to find a 9th, 10th or 11th grade guitar player.
Congratulations for Copland’s selection to the 2014 All State Jazz Band! Also, congratulations to Jake for being selected as the alternate trumpet player for the All State Jazz Band! That is fantastic!!!!!
These are our available performance dates. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know as soon as possible if you have a conflict with any of these dates.
