The Woodlands Concert Band
Good evening,

Sorry for the lateness of this email. I actually had this mostly completed on Monday, just waiting for some last minute information. Thank you Erma for reminding me to send this.

I would first like to commend all the band members who participated in the combined concert of the Rachmaninov Variations on a Theme of Paganini and the Faure Requiem at Christ Church on Saturday. There is not a better example of a community coming together to create music with participants of our band, the string section from The Woodlands High School and members of the Christ Church Chancel Choir and The Woodlands Chorale. Mihai Vatca played with his quintessential musical virtuosity and I look forward to him playing with us on the World Premier of A Festive Tribute.

Here is the order of music for the rehearsal this Thursday:
Fanfare from “La Peri”
Third Suite – mvts. I & II
A Festive Tribute
Molly on the Shore
The Circus Bee
Second Suite in F
Variations on a Korean Folk Song (start m. 150)
Incidental Suite (if time, there should be)
Trauersinfonie (if time, maybe not)

I have discovered a resource where misprints (remember me talking of a period of band music publishing where misprints were unfortunately numerous that I will be using when I post the first rehearsal “newsletter” for each remaining concert. Hopefully, all of the following have been found. But if not, please correct in your parts.
