Hello members and new friends...Happy Labor Day Weekend! We'll keep an eye on the hurricane, but the fall schedule of practices in preparation for the next few concerts begins this next Tuesday, Sept. 3rd, 7 - 9 p.m. at Robertsdale High School Band Room. Please be prompt so Jason can get rehearsals started on time. A few things as we get started, 1) we'll have some new members joining us, so let's all make them feel welcome; 2) those in percussion and the board members are responsible for bringing snacks to the first rehearsal; 3) I need a committee of around 5 to be responsible for making sure the chairs and stands are set up and ready to go for rehearsal start-time. Let me know if you can do that, I'll be there around 6:30 to help, but y'all probably know better how the chairs go; 4) ***Important*** Please don't park on the grass by the bandroom door because there are underground pipes there, thank you!
Practices continue the following Tuesdays, 9/10, 9/17, 9/24 (Homestead Village), 10/1. ALL Baldwin Pops Band practices are held at the Robertsdale High School Band Room which is located at the rear of the high school on Highway 59 in Robertsdale. Take Fairgrounds Road off Highway 59. The only current exception is Tuesday, Sept. 24th due to the band room being spoken for. That evening, we will be practicing in the meeting room of Homestead Village Assisted Living, 924 Plantation Blvd., Fairhope. The room is located on the North side of the facility. Concerts are Sunday, Oct. 6th @ 5:30 p.m. Henry George Park, Fairhope; Sunday, Oct. 13th @ 6 p.m. Spanish Fort City Pavillion; Sunday, Oct. 20th @ 5 p.m. Orange Beach Arts Center.
Thanks, I'll be back in touch next week and see you Tuesday evening. Kenny
