Important – Rehearsal arrangements for Patrick Church !!!

Hi all,

If you only read one blog post this year, please make it this one !

As you know, we’ve had a very patchy run up to the Patrick concert, and as a result I’ve had to make some changes to the play list as we’ve gone along.

I’ve now frozen the play-list.  The only change to the last version in terms of tunes played is that I’ve put in Summertime, and taken out St. Louis Blues.

We’ll play the list below in order.  We only have 3 rehearsals left until the concert, so please make sure you have the right music in playlist order in your folders, so we don’t spent valuable time looking for sheet music instead of playing.

In the middle week, Tynwald Day gets in the way of our normal rehearsal slot, so we’ve moved the rehearsal to Wednesday instead.  I haven’t got confirmation from Susie or Jas yet as they’re currently away – but everyone else can make it and it’s our only chance to put together the tunes that require us to have more than 1 or 2 altos.

Our rehearsals are therefore as follows …..

Monday 30th June – Whitestrand – Present – Jem, Ben, Susie, Michael, David. – No Jas, Kyra, Matt.

Wednesday 9th July – Whitestrand – Present – Jem, Ben, Susie, Jas, Kyra, Michael, David. – No Matt.

Monday 14th July – Patrick Church – Present – All except Matt.

Concert Friday 18th July – Patrick Church – All hopefully !
