Thanks to everyone who came to our concerts the week of July 4th. We had a blast and hope you did too!
We are now off for the summer, but this year will be trying something new with an informal reading group. See below for more.
Summer Reading Sessions
Starting July 15 we will be having reading sessions during our regular rehearsal time Tuesday at 7:30PM at Covenant United Methodist Chruch. This will give players a chance to work on sight reading skills as well as experience a variety of band repertoire. Come on out and have some fun! You do not have to be a regular member of the band to participate.
We are always accepting new members. More Info
Best Excuse to Be a Band Geek Again--Austin Chronicle
Austin Civic Wind Ensemble
One time, at band camp, we heard about this great group of musicians in A-town: As Austin's oldest community band, the Austin Civic Wind Ensemble (ACWE) has been charming Central Texas audiences since 1975. Besides treating our town to the best in-concert band performances, this ensemble also provides an outlet for Austin area musicians, amateur and professional, to get out there and play. So, whether you are looking to rekindle fond memories of your band-geek glory days or you wish to simply revel in that sound that takes you to another time and place, check them out. Their Web site is loaded with information on how to get involved. (Best of Austin 2006 issue)
