When a few of us put this together in 2012, I don't think we understood that we'd get this far. But it continues to be fun for those of us who play, and a pleasure for community and friends who gather in the park and listen.
Long live PC Pops!
We have several things to do before our first rehearsal:
- Line up our membership. We hope that many of you that have played with us in past years can arrange to join us again. And we always look forward to meeting new members who want to play some great music over a short summer season. Leave your name on the I want to be Part Of It page if you'd like us to contact you and answer questions. Refer your musicians friends to this page, too, to get on our roll for updates and reminders.
- Make note of our practice schedule. Our practices will begin
June 1, and continue on Wednesday nights (7:30 to 9:00)[See the Bulletin page about this change] Saturday, June 4, then continue on Tuesday nights (7-9 p.m.) and Saturday mornings (10 a.m. to noon) until the performance on Monday, August 8. Note that there's one Tuesday and one Saturday that the practice room isn't available (June 25, and June 28, which is a voting day), so that will be a week off for us all. See the calendar page for specifics.
- Spread the word to friends and family. We'd like to include more players than ever before. We usually have trouble finding oboe, bassoon, French horns, tuba, enough percussionists. The more strings, the better, of course.
