Summer Concert Reflection
I'm hearing that lots of you had a great time yesterday. I'm so happy to hear this! It is so fun and gratifying to spread the joy to your family and friends! Thank you for all you do to make this possible. I certainly had a great time! We played very well. Lots of great solos, wonderful ensemble playing, and good attention to detail. We had just one or two shaky spots but we managed to hold on. Thank you to Sam Amer for the video and to Marguerite for sharing the links. I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.

From Karen - Women's Club - A Fun Afternoon
Dear Pops Band!

Thank you for a fun afternoon today! It was one of the best performances we've had and certainly one of the best audiences. I wish I had had a mirror on my music stand so I could have seen the group of ladies dancing to our music - a true testament to your great playing (or maybe it was the wine)! Marguerite's husband captured some of it on video which we will try and share with everyone.

Sorry for the confusion about being able to partake in the goodies after the concert. We will get clarification on that next time we play there.

Our next Pops Concert is in June at Vista Del Monte. Thank you for your enthusiasm and your willingness to participate in these concerts. -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.
