From our perspective from last week’s concert we could practically feel the salt spray of the ocean and see every azure hue of the lake as we presented “Water Music!” We loved the opportunity to present to our wonderful audience all the fine pieces of music our conductor, Ben Hawkins, skillfully selected. Of course the band members expended much energy along with our conductor in rehearsing and presenting these pieces, but it takes many more people to present a concert of this magnitude.
This is the band’s opportunity to thank those persons: the audience, stage crew, our friends of the band, spouses and family members, the band board members, cookie bakers, and even the Jolly Old Elf, himself, Santa, who made his most welcomed seasonal appearance! We’re hoping to remain on the “nice” list. “Thank you” to everyone who makes this venture so successful!
As the new year begins, so do rehearsals. We are excited to perform our next concert at 3 PM on March 5, again at Transylvania University’s Haggin Auditorium. Our next concert will be thematically centered upon the most somber of subjects: War. As emotionally-charged as our last concert was, we very much anticipate exploring the vast spectrum of feelings associated with this topic and presenting it to you this March.
