The PTB has a bulletin board that our members can use to post items of interest to the entire band. These items are not necessary for the successful operation of the band so they are not disseminated through emails to all band members.
To post an item to the PTB's Liszt (think Craig's List) send the title and the text you want posted to the webmaster. Examples of potential items are:
  • Volunteers needed

Summer Concert - We Did It!
I think we accomplished our mission of providing high quality, entertaining and satisfying music to the Santa Barbara Community on Sunday.

Many people came up to me to make a point of saying how much they enjoyed the music and the band. They really enjoy the light-hearted, fun-loving atmosphere that we create. We had a glitch here and there, but we recovered and were able to right the ship. When this happens I always learn something about how I can give gestures that will mitigate attempts to fall off course.

We had so many familiar melodies that people felt connected to the music. I can't promise that this will always be the case or even often that it will be case, but we will always have some of those kinds of pieces.

From Karen - Vista del Monte - Wow!
Hello all

Wow! Thank you all for a wonderful POPS concert today at Vista Del Monte. It was a beautiful morning, not too hot, and the best crowd yet (thank you Marguerite for awakening the residents with your trumpet call!). Many of you told me you thought it was our best concert yet and I would agree! We played with a lot of energy this morning I received many compliments from the residents about how much they enjoyed your performance. I enjoyed interacting with the audience and giving those special moments to Coach John and former music educator Suzy Ochi (thanks for the heads up Toni). And, of course, lots of fun recognizing John Brunner's birthday! Thank you again for volunteering your time to the POPS Band!

Rehearsal Announcements
From time to time we all have important things we want to say to the band during our rehearsal break. We are a large and diverse group so it seems reasonable to have some type of guidelines concerning these announcements.
The Board of Directors recently adopted a policy that is currently in force. Please read this policy.
