Closing in on May ukulele concert program
« on: March 06, 2020, 10:09:04 AM »
The ukulele Band has been whacking away for a few weeks, and the result is ...

In preparation for our May concert, the Delta Strummers rehearsal list has been cut from 43 to 24 numbers, plus two encore numbers. 15 of the 26 concert numbers came from recent open mic' sessions, and are new-to-us; They include some new vocal and instrumental challenges.

This time around, we'll be accompanied on stage for 3-4 numbers by students from the elementary school advanced ukulele class being taught by Band members.

We're back at El Campanil Theatre in Antioch, always a great venue for audience and performers.

Last week, our May uke concert was rescheduled to October, along with multiple other performances at the theatre.

Meanwhile, to help folks practice at home, our Music Director has been recording solos and small-group instrument renditions of songs in our concert program. I'm linking them in our song book so folks can download/listen and play/sing along.

Tom - Do you think you guys will get together in October? I hope so but I don't think we will be out of the woods by then.

I don't know Tom, but likely doubtful. We recently secured an outdoor location for folks to gather/practice (with distancing and masks) on a couple of dates in August. Yesterday, our Board reviewed the latest County health orders, and I just (a few minutes ago) put out a 'Postponed' email to the membership.

FWIW we're in Wyoming for the summer, but I'd have likely missed the gathering even if we were home.
