Now that I have a bit of a sense of who’s interested, I’ve pulled a set for the band. Here are recordings of the three tunes we’ll look at on Tuesday evening, 8-9pm.
I’ll have parts prepared for the rehearsal but please contact me if you’d like to see the music before then. If you’ve got any questions, don’t hesitate to ask – firstname.lastname@example.org
Students who are interested in singing or playing with the Provincial Honour Band, Orchestra, Choir, Jazz Band or Vocal Jazz Ensemble are invited to apply starting now. Audition requirements can be found at http://bcmusiced.ca/ensembles/ and submissions are due by Friday, April 13, 2018 to perform with the ensembles next October.
Just a note to members of both Senior Jazz Ensemble and Senior Wind Ensemble. On Wednesday, January 31, 2018, we will have a Senior Jazz Clinic with Dr. David Proznick. All members of Senior Jazz are required to attend. As such, students NOT in Senior Jazz do not need to attend that morning.
So we’ve handed out a fair bit of music for the next few months, but we’re looking for suggestions from students for other ideas as to what they want to perform. We need ideas that have been written for band already so follow the link here: https://www.jwpepper.com/sheet-music/concert-band-music.jsp to the concert band listings for JW Pepper (think Amazon for music programs) and search for songs you’d like to play. Be sure you’re in the band listings and looking for the right difficulty:
- Band 6/7 – Very Easy
- Honour Band – Very Easy or Easy
- Band 8 & 9 – Easy or Medium Easy
- Band 10 – Medium Easy or Medium
- Band 11/12 (SWE) – Medium or Medium Advanced
