Thursday, Thursday, Thursday! Come to the band room at Mitchell Fine Arts Center at Transylvania University at 7:30 p.m. and hold on to your hats!
The Central Kentucky Concert Band is kicking off its 2015-2016 Season with its FORTIETH ANNUAL MEGA MONSTER OPEN REHEARSAL! Bring your friends, bring your kids, bring your mom and dad, provided they’re all over 18 and play a musical instrument!
There’ll be Ben Hawkins standing in front waving his arms frantically, providing ROCK STEADY conducting!
There’ll be whole notes, half notes, quarter notes and eighth notes, but don’t count on any rests!
There will be time signatures such as 4/4, 3/4, 5/8, and cut time!*
(*Time signatures have been invited, but have not been confirmed.)
Yes! This is it! This is what you’ve been waiting for ALL SUMMER LONG!
Oil those slides and valves, check your reeds, and
COME TO THE BAND ROOM ON Thursday, Thursday, Thursday! FOR A GREAT EVENING OF REHEARSAL FUN!
