Rehearsal Mon 24th MarchPosted: March 20, 2014
Firstly, please note that I’ve uploaded to the current repertoire page, the score / parts for both Summertime and the Manx National Anthem.
Monday evening will be our final run through and chance to correct any musical issues.
Can you please make sure that your music is in a suitable folder (not loose), and in play list order as below.
We won’t run through every tune, and some will only be skimmed through to correct specific errors.
Nevertheless, we need to allow for a slightly extended session as with last week – please do make every effort to turn up ready to play at 6:45pm.
