Percussion Ensemble Update 3-16-18

Percussion Ensemble,

A reminder that the next rehearsal is on THURSDAY next week — a change from our original schedule. Here is the rehearsal plan:

6:00-6:30 Walk the Walk
6:30-7:00 Don’t You Want Me Baby
7:00-7:40 Rock Around the Clock
7:40-8:20 De Janeiro Daze
8:20-9:00 Bluegrass Rondeau

Those of you with Colorguard rehearsal as well, please stay at percussion through Rock Around the Clock (if you play that song) — then go to Colorguard after.

Thank you and see you THURSDAY!
Mr. Tanzos

Percussion Ensemble Update 3-12-18

Percussion Ensemble,

Our next rehearsal (attempt!) is on WEDNESDAY. Here is the rehearsal schedule for this week:

6:00-6:40 Don’t You Want Me Baby — Mallets ONLY
6:40-7:20 Don’t You Want Me Baby — EVERYONE
7:20-7:30 Walk the Walk
7:30-8:00 Rock Around the Clock
8:00-8:30 De Janeiro Daze
8:30-9:00 Bluegrass Rondeau

With the loss of another rehearsal, we are really starting to be pressed for time to prepare for our performances. Quality rehearsal focus and starting each song right away will be extremely important to maximizing our time. Please come ready knowing your individual part, so that we can work to put it together with the ensemble!

Thank you and see you WEDNESDAY!
Mr. Tanzos

Percussion Ensemble Update 3-7-18

Percussion Ensemble,

Just confirming that since school was closed today, there is NO percussion rehearsal tonight. PLEASE be sure to spend some of your time at home today practicing your music! We have been hit very hard this year with snow days on Percussion Ensemble rehearsal days — and it will be difficult to make that time up, with performances quickly approaching in just a little over a month.

We’ll try again next week for rehearsal — stay tuned for a rehearsal schedule, as we will likely do it differently than was planned for this week.

Thanks and see you soon,
Mr. Tanzos
