Winter Concert
We had another wonderful concert! I've heard so many favorable things about your performance! Everyone has their favorite pieces. I know many people really enjoyed Immer Kleiner. Larry did an awesome job! Every piece was strong and musical. A few places we wavered a bit, but we righted the ship with no major consequence. I heard people talk about the Holst and how well we availed ourselves. I certainly agree. It was so fun to conduct! The sound at the end of the first movement was breath-taking! Trumpets did a great job in the opening of the 3rd movement that carried us all the way to the end.

I've heard people call the concert, "stellar, best ever, a major feat for the Prime Time Band", among others. These are compliments worthy of accepting. I don't know if this was our best ever, That's so hard for me to say. I can say it was strong, dynamic and moving, delightful and very satisfying. Congratulations everyone! You put on quite a show last Sunday!

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

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.
