Medina Community Band
(Celebrating 157 years of community service)

Thursday, December 1st, 2016 - Volume 42, Number 20

Good evening to all -

A reminder that we will rehearse in the band room at the middle school on
Wednesday, December 7th!  

Seems the early bugs are out and about, lots of illness.  Please stay well
and take care.  We really need all of the troops with us for the remainder
of our rehearsals.

Hard rehearsal. A reminder that some rehearsals simply have to be hammering
out parts rather than running them through. These are very important
rehearsals and we really are making progress.  I want to stress again that
each of us much push our envelope as hard as we can. You can't success
unless you try to push yourself beyond your comfort zone.  

We will continue working on literature for the January 20th, 2017th Winter
Concert. The concert will take place in the auditorium of Highland High

Again, as a reminder, Medina Community Band will not have rehearsals during
the Highland Local Winter Break, which means that we will not meet on
Wednesday, December 21st or 28th.  We WILL meet on December 7th and 14th.

My best to all - Marcus
