Originally we had planned to reconvene next week for rehearsals but schools are closed the week of April 5-11 and the policy is that when schools are closed, we can’t use the facilities.
So our first rehearsal after Easter will be Tuesday April 14 at the usual location (HVHS)
There are two scheduled upcoming events: The May 23 performance is for Joshua L Chamberland Camp #20, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. The performance is requested at 10 AM, Saturday, May 23rd in Evergreen Burial Park, 307 Summit Ave, Roanoke, VA. The show runs for about an hour. We will need to be there at 9:30. Of course since it is outdoors we will need to bring stands, clothespins, etc
The second event is our final spring concert. Slated for June 2nd at HVHS, we also will be hosting our scholarship recipients. See pasted excerpt from last week sent by Susan Schlossberg to the candidates:
“Thank you for participating in the RVCB Summer Music Camp Scholarship auditions yesterday. The winner will be announced at our June 2 concert at Hidden Valley High School auditorium at 7pm. We ask that you come to two practices prior to the concert, which will be held in the Hidden Valley High School band room. Please choose two of the three dates to attend, bring your instrument, and we will provide music for you ahead of time as you will play one piece with us prior to the winner being announced. All of you are winners and will receive a prize of some sort. Dates to attend practices are: May 12, May 19, or May 26. Again, please choose any two of these dates. We will begin rehearsal at 7pm, practice the shared piece first, and have you finished by 7:20pm. ”
Additional follow up instructions with dress, etc will be discussed at rehearsal and recapped here.
