Welcome to the DW Poppy Elementary Honour Band. We have a great year ahead of us with a number of fun performance opportunities and even a bit of local travel this spring. Below is information related to what we’re doing and what you need.

  • Current Folder Contents:
    • Foundation Warmups – Set #3
    • Ode to Joy – arranged by Robert Longfield
    • Stronghold – Sean O’Loughlin
  • Expectations:
    • Bring your instrument, folder, music and pencil every class
    • Take notes during rehearsal and work on the music at home to get better at at least 3 sections, at least 3 times a week
    • Listen to the demo recordings until you can vocalize it (doo, doo, doo, la, la, la or whatever works for you) so you know they are internalized and you know your target
    • Communicate absences via email in advance if at all possible
  • Demo Recordings
  • Performance Dates:
    • December 6 @ DW Poppy – ESPRESSIVO: Winter Celebration
    • March 2 @ DW Poppy – Elementary Zone Concert
