10/8/18 Weekly Member Update

Good evening ACB,

Regular rehearsal this week (10/9), but remember with the federal holiday today that band might fall on your first day back in the office!

On October 16, there is no rehearsal — Jim has to play a concert and his normal substitute is unavailable. We will remind you next week of this as well, and the event has been canceled from the calendar.

The October 23 rehearsal will be at Washington-Lee HS. We will send another reminder week of and have updated the location in the calendar.

Weekly Updates

Hi ACB Members,

Jim will be switching from our blast email communications to weekly updates posted to the Members’ Corner of the site. Check here weekly for important updates. We will also be pushing updates to the ACB rehearsal calendar, so if you’re subscribed to that you’ll see changes in rehearsal locations and the like.

Upcoming Concerts

We’ll be playing right out of the gate this season! More details to come, but mark your calendars:

Our first concert is October 7 during Alexandria’s “Art on the Avenue.” This event drew nearly 50,000 people last year! We will be performing around noon in a 45-minute slot. Our second performance is October 19, at Washington-Lee High School with their second band. We will still also do our traditional concert with H-B Woodlawn on December 6.
 
Keep your eyes peeled for Facebook events to all above and more updates in the coming weeks!
In the meantime, we look forward to seeing all of our members again at rehearsal September 12.
