Doors to the Opera House will only be open at 5:30pm for load in. Band members can enter via the elevator entrance or front door. The elevator entrance is through the double doors – with windows – toward the back of the Opera House, directly across from the Library entrance in the parking lot.
From the elevator, the stage is on the 3rd floor. From the front entrance or ground floor, the stage is on the 1st floor (meaning up the stairs and through the double doors).

Message from Doug – Mar 20
Jacky Siu, the conductor our our guest band from Kennedy PS, will be attending several of the remaining rehearsals to conduct Greek Folk Songs. We’ll have his piece handy and pull it out when he arrives.
I’m well into planning next season’s rep list. If you’re interested in playing a solo at one of our shows, please let me know. Tentatively booked so far are Bill (tuba) and Wilf (tenor sax). By the way, the tentative show themes are MCB’s Hallowe’en Party (yay, costumes), A Seasonal Celebration, MCB’s World Tour, and A British Invasion (A Night at the Proms meets The Beatles).
Reminder: our Music Alive appearance is Wednesday, May 1. As discussed at the last rehearsal, I’ve concluded (with the band’s input) that Piasa and Vilia will be better choices for adjudication.
Here’s the playlist for our March 25 rehearsal:
Greek (when Jacky arrives)
Back to the Future
Concerto for Clarinet
