Dear WMAS members and friends!
We had a good Oktoberfest play-along at our last meeting, on September 26. Thanks to everyone who came to play or just to listen. And many thanks to Hilde Spitz for bringing sheet music to share -- it was enough to keep us going for an hour and a half!
The October meeting will take place in person again at Sleepy Hollow United Methodist Church on Sunday, October 24, at 4pm. Besides our usual play-along, we will do a first, “get acquainted” run-through of the Holiday Orchestra music. We hope orchestra members will attend the meeting -- and please be sure to bring your accordions and the music for your part! This will not be a rehearsal per se but a chance to try the music in a group for the first time.
HOLIDAY ORCHESTRA UPDATE
As of this writing, we have 17 players in the Holiday Orchestra! We will be performing a couple of selections from past concerts, along with five brand-new arrangements. If you want to participate but have not yet told Peter, there is still time. Call him at 703-919-5701, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. He has uploaded the music for this year’s Holiday Orchestra concert and will soon be emailing participants with further instructions for downloading it, practicing with the MP3s, playing the parts, rehearsing, etc.
Meanwhile, if you have not already done so, please mark your calendar for the rehearsal dates: November 7 at 4 pm, November 14 at 4 pm(during the monthly meeting), and December 5 at 2 pm, and before the concert on December 12 at 2 pm. These are all Sundays.
See you soon!
