Rehearsals resume on September 25
For a full rehearsal and concert schedule for the 2018-2019 season, see the Rehearsal Calendar.
From the Conductor
I hope all of you had a restful summer. Now it's time to find a reed, apply your rosin, and oil your valves to make ready for our first rehearsal of the season scheduled for Tuesday, September 25, starting at 700pm in the Springfield High School Band Room. Some of you might have noticed that our start date is one or two weeks later than usual. The Board thought this might be a good idea as it would allow some members to finish their vacations and give the college students time after they arrive back in town. We'll make up the lost rehearsal time with our extended rehearsals before the concerts.
Included in our website update is a tentative list of music for our fall concert. Thank you to all of you who made suggestions about music we might play. If we don't get to your pick this year, we'll try to work it in next year. I look forward to seeing you again when we gather for our first rehearsal.
Take care, Richard
Note from John Hidalgo
Please extend my sincere thanks to the orchestra. The check was very generous, particularly in light of the time they had already spent rehearsing and performing the piece.
Inclement Weather If the Springfield Public Schools are closed due to bad weather, we will not rehearse. When in doubt, check back here.
