Thursday, September 19th

Also, please bring your RED BAND music to Sectionals. Your Mentor will spend a little time working on that music as well.

Looking ahead:

Our first Red Band gig, is Tuesday, September 24th @ 2:15pm, at Abraham School #22, 595 Upper Falls Blvd, Rochester. If you’d like to be part of this, please sign-up in rehearsal next week. The sign-up sheet will be located on the cabinet behind the conductors’ podium.  

We’ve been getting a number of questions about the Rehearsal Schedule. You might not be aware, but the schedule for the entire year is posted on the website. http://www.rocnewhorizons.org/NHB_REHEARSAL_SCHEDULE_2019-20.pdf

The Concert Dates are also included on this schedule.

If you have not already done so, please be sure you have registered with ECMS. You can start this process by talking with Susan Miller or Paula Sousa.

We had a very good first week of rehearsals. Just a reminder: our first concert is November 10th, just 8 weeks away!

Have a great weekend.
