Rehearsal 21/05/2012

Lowish turnout..people doing Sound of Music I suppose.(and hols)

Clarinet section... a definite cull...down from 10 to 4 people.

Tried through Dvorak New World last movt...went pretty well for a second run through, after a gap of some months. Good sightreading from every body.

Ellington School Fair

Much reduced band (15 players) played for school event.

We were outside and the rest of the events were inside.
Bit chilly, but the rain kept off
The punters came out to listen to us.

We played well and it seemed to be appreciated.
Played Teddy Bears Picnic twice...

Nice cup of tea and even yummier sticky carrot cake at half time.

Well done to all of those who participated.
and a special thanks to our new euphonium player who made it for half of the gig!!
