Guided Rehearsal

On Tuesdays at 6:30pm a guest conductor hosts guided rehearsals on Zoom.

Is it just like our in-person rehearsals? Nope but its a great way to get in some practice and reconnect with our band friends. We play from 6:30 to 8:30 with a short break at 7:30 to visit with each other. The conductor creates "breakout" rooms with 4-7 people so we can trade info about binge TV watching or our favorite take-out meals. There are still jokes! So it's still fun, you get to see friends and most importantly play a little music.

It's still music and it is still fun. Please join us.

Puzzles for Lockdown

Some of you have said that you like to work jigsaw puzzles. Toni suggested a site the lets you do puzzles online so you don't have to worry about the cat stepping on the pieces. You can see it here.

You can also build puzzles from you own image. I've taken a few of our PTB images and created links to their puzzles. Enjoy!

Summer Concert Music

Here is the music for the summer concert:

From Karen - Vista Del Monte
Dear Prime Time Pops Band,

Thank you for coming out to play for Vista Del Monte on Saturday. As always, we had a great, appreciative audience! The weather was perfect....not too hot, not too cold (for most of us anyway) and no wind. Helene, the activities director, is always on top of things making sure we have what we need. A special thank you to Toni, Margaret, and Linda for welcoming us in to their "backyard." The band sounded great - one of our best performances yet! Marguerite's husband (thank you Sam) took videos of each piece so hopefully everyone will be able to view those.

Our next Pops Band performance will be in September at Casa Dorinda. They are looking forward to having us and it should be a fun event. Thank you for volunteering your time for these Pops performances. -Karen
Rehearsal Announcements
From time to time we all have important things we want to say to the band during our rehearsal break. We are a large and diverse group so it seems reasonable to have some type of guidelines concerning these announcements.
The Board of Directors recently adopted a policy that is currently in force. Please read this policy.
