06 May 2nd Rehearsal – 2012.05.05
I have been remiss in updating our website, I appologize! I have been trying to use Facebook since everyone’s on there, and keeping this calendar as accurate as possible. Soon I hope to have all the instructors blogging!
First off, I want to thank again Arbella Alumnus BETH ANDERSON LAMACCHIA for facilitating the use of GIRLS Inc in Lynn for us to use. What a fantastic building! It is such a bright beautiful place to rehearse, with plenty of rooms for breakout sessions, perfect facilities… just a wonderful happy place. We hope that the girls at Girls Inc might be inspired to join Arbella, and we look forward to presenting a demonstration to the girls sometime in the near future. THANKS AGAIN BETH and GIRLS INC!
Also, I want to thank Allen and Cathy Bourgeois for trudging down from NH to attend the last two rehearsals. And tonight, LynnShane provided desert – that was a nice treat, thanks for thinking of that (you know I’m not organized enough to remember that, thank you!)
We started rehearsal with a group drill down led by Joel to refresh everyone’s memory and get the younger peeps more exposure. Then we broke for pizza and snacks followed by sectionals were Joel worked on choreography to Naval Hymn and the Brass, after a little transposition, was soon playing through the piece.
Our next rehearsal at Girls Inc isn’t for a few weeks due to availability so SECTIONALS will be taking place NEXT SATURDAY MAY 12th. TIMES to be discussed – watch facebook wall and the calendar on this site.
GUARD PRACTICE will take place in the park directly opposite Lauren’s house at 16 Wenham Street in Danvers.
If the weather is nice there’s no reason not to have brass outside too, but we can also go to Lauren’s studio at 44 Maple Street, Danvers. WATCH THIS SPACE.
