"Second Chances Band gave me my first chance to turn my interest in percussion into a reality and I now thoroughly enjoy being challenged and having a blast making music as part of a concert band. Anyone wanting a first, second or third chance to play in a concert band, check us out!" -- Pam Campbell, Percussionist
You don't always know through a first read what is going to be your favourite piece. I don't know about you but I like the background info that Allie and Rowan give on any particular piece. I like thinking that "The Red Covered Bridge" is kind of like "Bridges of Madison County".
I remember liking that movie, and it was a comfortable sort of like.
Now that we're actually playing this piece I struggle to recall. What happened? Oh yes. The visitor from National Geographic.
I never been in Madison County Iowa. But I can imagine a "Red Covered Bridge".
Do you want to dust off your old instrument and return to playing in a Concert Band?
It's never too late to make music
For those of you with instrument experience Second Chances Community Concert Band is starting the winter semester of our ninth great year of growth and musicianship. Can I mention how fun it is? New members are certainly welcome. Join us on Tuesday, January 9 in the Queen Charlotte Band Room. Registration is at 6:30, practice starts at 7:00.
New members may pay at the end of practice or next week.
Philosophy: The performance of music in an ensemble is an experience which provides enrichment and joy for both the performer and the audience which shares that performance.
Experienced music educators Allie McCrady and Rowan Fitzgerald offer their expertise and guidance in weekly practices held in the Queen Charlotte Intermediate School band room.
