Rehearsals and Repertoire UpdatePosted: October 23, 2012
Rehearsal at Patrick Church – Mon 29th October
Firstly, a quick reminder that our next rehearsal is at the Holy Trinity Church in Patrick.
See below for map and picture of the church. Directions from St. John’s are ….
Approaching the crossroads in the centre of the village from the Greeba direction, take the left turning downhill – then at the bottom of the hill take the right turn to Patrick. Arriving in Patrick at a T-Junction, take the right turn and the church is 200yds up on the right side of the road.
In a great show of teamworking, David has kindly agreed to play Alto 2 on both of the Jon Halton pieces (Horace Silver and Jungle Book) to help out as Jane M and Andrea won’t be at the concert.
Andrea has already donated a priae to the raffle. If anyone else feels similarly disposed, please let me know and I’ll pass on the info to the guys at the church. Ta.
All – Please be at the church at latest 6:30pm, to allow time to setup and warm up – we’ll start the rehearsal at 6:45.
Christmas Meal / AGM – Monday 10th December
As you know, we’ll be holding our annual dinner at the Creg ny Baa. The cost of the meal is £22.50. Drinks are extra !
Andrea is collecting deposits from all at the next couple of rehearsals – @ £20 each. …. and as an incentive to save us having to play debt collector again, if you pay Andrea on or before our rehearsal on 5th November, you only pay £20 – the MSE will pick up the difference. Anyone paying after 5th November will pay the full rate !
As you know, we have a mini concert planned for Saturday afternoon 8th December, and we’ll be out in Douglas busking later in the month.
Please keep an eye out for an email coming your way this week to check who plays what on our Christmas repertoire. Please try to get this back to me without delay, so that I can plan parts for Kyra, Matt and Charlotte in good time. Ta.
