February 2018

I am currently working on Easter Band parts for First UU. So far, I have 1 violin, 1 viola, 3 clarinets, 2 trombones, 1 mandolin, 1 hammered dulcimer, 1 accordion, 2 percussion, 2 aux percussion (1 possibly on piano). Let me know if you think I might be missing you (or if i added you accidentally)!

Easter Band is an intergenerational ensemble. They accompany the Easter hymns at First UU, and this year I might even have a seperate piece for them – we’ll see how much time I have. All ages, all abilities, and all instruments are welcome to join. I tailor each part to the person playing it.

You must attend at least 3 rehearsals and the dress rehearsal to play on Easter morning. Rehearsals will be in March:
Sundays 4, 11, 25, 12:15 – 1:00 (all Sundays except Ordination Sunday)
Thursday evenings 1, 15, 22, 29 6:00 – 6:15 (all Thursdays except March 8)
Dress Rehearsal 9:45 downbeat!! Sunday, April 1 (aka Easter)

If you are interested in participating, there’s still time to let me know at sarajobrandt @ hotmail dot com, but please do so by February 15th so I have time to create parts and a seating arrangement.
