Peel Cathedral – July 31st.

Hi all,

As you can see from the list below, we’re firming up our play-list for our concert in Peel Cathedral.  This is a key concert for us, so please take your preparations seriously.  We have 4 rehearsals left, and I want to make sure they’re effective.  I’ll put the effort into making sure you have everything you need ahead of time, but it’s up to you to organise your sheet music, and most importantly put in any practice necessary outside of our Monday sessions, to make sure you’re confident with the tunes.

Much of the material is the same as for Tynwald, so when we next meet we’ll concentrate on any “Tynwald” tunes that need a tweak, plus the additional items – Yesterday, Crazy Little Thing / Reet Petite, Slow Trad. Blues, Song of the Three Steamers – and of course the Hymn (The Day though gavest).

Lastly, I’ll run Persiflage and Gershwin’s Lullaby as a small group to take the pressure off a bit 🙂

Cheers Jem
