For us, this is a kind of “preview” concert for music we will include on our Fall Concert on November 14th.  With each of our bands, we will plan on performing one march and one or two other selections from the pieces we have in our folder:
            Sym. II: Comrades of the Legion; Hypnotic Memories ORMy Lord, What a Mourning
            Sym. I: White Rose; Square; Land of the Living Waters
            Combined Band: Star Trek Medley
This concert is always a lot of fun!  It is also a very important opportunity to encourage our potential incoming members to CONTINUE TO PLAY with us next year!
