First Rehearsal

First rehearsal

First rehearsal

We had nearly 40 people at our first rehearsal. We had a nice range of ages, from high school age to retirement age, but all were very skilled.

We read through our repertoire, which included:

  • O Magnum Mysterium
  • The Klaxon (Fillmore, ed. Fennell)
  • Star Spangled Banner (arr. Stamp)
  • Jupiter (Holst)
  • Americana Folk Suite (Kopetz)
  • Music from The Incredibles (Giacchino, arr. Bocook)
  • Summertime (Gershwin, arr. Custer)
  • West Side Story (Bernstein)
  • Music for a Darkened Theater (Elfman, arr. Brown)

We’re hoping to add a few more pieces to the list, including Country Band March (Ives), Molly on the Shore (Grainger), and Folk Dances (Shostokovich). From this we’ll put together an enjoyable evening of music for our audience on July 10.
