See you by 3:15pm on Sunday, 12/15 at Westminster Elks Lodge (3850 Elk Dr) for our 3:50-4:15pm performance in between sets of the Hot Tomatoes Dance Orchestra. Please wear your maroon/dark khaki slacks outfit. This is the DJC’s Annual Holiday Potluck Session. Be sure all 3 performance selections are prepared and memorized.
We will have our parent/student trip meeting immediately after our performance concludes, by 4:30pm. I’ve attached & uploaded the rules sheet, which needs to be signed by you and your parent before our January 23rd overnight Broadmoor trip. Please bring that with you to Sunday’s meeting. I’ll also have copies available at the meeting. 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 on January 23-24.
Please bring dinner money, as we’ll stop for food on the way to our 6:30-9pm rehearsal (No Jake C at rehearsal).
Please remember to bring your December dues, if you haven’t turned them in as of yet.
Tom Evans, Josh’s banjo playing friend, is joining us on Sunday. We are hoping this works out. Tom is a junior and already plays banjo – he is also a proficient pianist. Tom will just need to learn how to play plectrum banjo.
TRANSCRIPTION ASSIGNMENT: Everyone is required to transcribe a solo from our professional recordings. We should be able to listen to all transcriptions this Sunday. Adam is doing “The Mooche,” Jake C is transcribing “Saints,” Jake W is doing “Bourbon Street,” or something else, Andrew is transcribing “Bill Bailey, and Trevor is transcribing “Washington and Lee Swing.” Copland has already completed and performed his transcription. Josh is working on his drum set technique.
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.
