February 24, 2009 -- One More Rehearsal Before The Concert
 

Hello, MCSB Members!
 
In this update:
 
TUGGA-DUT, One Last Time
RECORDING OF 2/23 REHEARSAL
CONCERT FLYER NOW ON WEBSITE
MC BAND CONCERT TONIGHT
 
=========================================
TUGGA-DUT! (One Last Time)
 
We are starting to conquer the challenge of “Italian In Algiers.”
 
The “TUGGA-DUT” technique lets us play that tune with more excitement and drive that we could do otherwise.
 
Sure, it’s a bit of extra work, but PLEASE do work on it a bit each day between now and the concert. It will really pay off if you do!
 
=========================================
RECORDING OF 2/23 REHEARSAL
 
Our friend Steve Northrup (Trombone) again recorded our rehearsal with his digital recorder.
 
He has uploaded his recordings again, for those who’d like to listen during the week.
 
You can download the recording (he only got the second half this week) at the following link:

Thanks again, Steve!

CONCERT FLYER NOW ON WEBSITE
 
You can still download the flyer for the March 7 concert on our website, at  http://www.mcsb.us/ConcertFlyer.php  (or just go to the main page and click on the “Download Concert Flyer” button).
 
The flyer that’s there right now still says 2008. Please make sure everyone knows it’s really 2009.
 
These flyers really do help get the word out, so give them to your neighbors, your coworkers, your friends at church and everywhere.

MC BAND CONCERT TONIGHT
 
Tonight, Tuesday, February 24, 2009, at 7:30 PM, the Mississippi College band, under the baton of our friend Dr. Craig Young, and augmented by a few of our own players, will be giving a concert in the Swor Auditorium on the MC Campus.
 
Our Horn Section Leader, Betsy Landers (who is playing with them for this concert), says this of the event:  It will be quite entertaining!  Dr. Young always likes to put some squirrelly stuff in there and this one is no different!  We are playing a song called "Snakes," and all kinds of things to make it interesting! It will not be a very long concert.  Playing the "Liberty Bell”,  "With Quiet Courage" by Larry Daehn, and a really cool (and difficult!!!) piece - A Download Suite by John Ireland,  plus a few other little things.  We need a crowd and I figured since Craig has been a part of our group on occasion,  that we should support him!!!
 
I agree. If you have some time tonight, go to MC Swor Auditorium, support their band, and have a good time at the concert!
 
==========================================
 
See you at rehearsal Monday!
 
Take care,
