Winter Concert - Another terrific concert
Thanks to everyone for another terrific concert! I was so pleased with our performance. I really think it was the best we have performed with our current pieces and arguably, ever. Every section pulled their own weight. The trombones brought the house down with Secret Love, the Typewriter was fabulously funny, and the second half was the favorite of many.

I heard wonderful comments from many different people. The audience was as big as we've ever had and so supportive. It was another afternoon to remember!

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.
Pops Band Conductor - Women's Club performance
Thank you for performing this afternoon at the Rockwood Woman's Club event. I received many positive and appreciative comments about our performance and, hey, we started and ended together - that's what counts :) Thanks again. Looking forward to the next one! .

PTB's Liszt (last updated on 3/7//2014)
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
  • free stuff
  • things for sale
