Just a quick note to confirm the tunes for this Monday’s session.
In the first half, we’ll run through selected pieces from our Tynwald Repertoite (see earlier post) – including Pink Panther.
Then we’ll move onto pieces for the Peel Cathedral concert, from the list below …
Song of the Three Steamers
Slow Trad. Blues #1
Crazy little thing / Reet Petite
A Sixties Medley
The Day thou Gavest (Hymn) – Jem to provide Sheet Music
See you there- Cheers Jem
Only two rehearsals left until Tynwald Day, so we’ll concentrate on getting our repertoire up to performance standard.
On the 25th we’ll start at the beginning of the list below and play through the set as we would on Tynwald day. …. although I’ll leave time to also run through Pink Panther as this is the only tune I have some doubts about.
Can you please make sure you have your tunes in your folders and in order, so that we don’t waste time running from one tune to the next – ta. I think we’re in pretty good shape generally, so if we have spare time we’ll look at some of our newer tunes such as Gershwin’s Lullaby and the Sixties Medley.
|I Feel Good|
|Little Brown Jug|
|Let’s face the Music|
|Basin Street Blues|
|(The) Yellow Dog Blues|
|It’s only a Paper Moon|
|Horace Silver Medley|
|The Muppets Theme|
|When I’m 64|
Firstly, thanks for a really good session last night – a solid turnout and some excellent sight-reading. I was really impressed with our treatment of Periflage and Gershwin’s Lullaby, The latter should appear on the music library soon, thanks to Jackie’s efforts in transcribing.
We have Ben with us next week, so we’ll rehearse tunes for Tynwald (see list below). David – why not bring along your Sop again, so we can run “When I’m 64” ? I’ll bring my Tenor along for a laugh and we can do a swap.
Tunes for the upcoming week (18th) are listed below, but please bring your parts for all of the currrent repertoire, so we can maintain some flexibility. Ta.
