Days 55 and 56

Hello,

Friday morning’s marching rehearsal went well, with us being on the turf practice field in preparation for that night’s football game performance. There isn’t really much to speak of: just lots of cleaning and running large chunks since we were marching more of the show this week than we did last weekend at Plano East Marching Invitational. 1,505 more words

Day 54

Hello,

This morning’s rehearsal was again spent on running and cleaning chunks of part 3. There are a couple of visuals that we added in during Monday night’s stadium rehearsal that we were debating cutting for this weekend’s UIL performance or not, so we spent some time working on those as well. 2,597 more words

Day 53

Hello,

This morning’s rehearsal was mostly spent cleaning up the drill that we learned yesterday morning. I mostly hung around the clarinets and the saxophones, the two sections who had the most trouble/confusion with the misnumbered drill charts issue that I mentioned yesterday. 1,439 more words
