This week’s Shout-Out goes to Alice Bryan, director of the Sounds of Sawnee Band in Cumming.
In an email to the SOS Band last night, Alice made the following announcement:
I have decided (and I discussed this with Sylvia) that we should cancel rehearsal on Monday, April 22 in order to be able to attend Steve Mashburn’s concert with the Southern Winds Concert Band and Denmark HS. I believe that this is a great way to show our support for another fine community band, a local high school band, and one of our own. Win, win, win. I plan to be there and I will look for you!
I appreciate Alice’s support and I think it is fantastic when community bands support each other.
6:00 Call Time
Although I dislike working on things at the last minute, we will rehearse the cut in Disney and the precision in Irish Tune after the rehearsal dinner.
I want to try a simple solution to both issues that I hope will work.
Also, Mr. Sneed will run-through Prince of Denmark with you.
Stay calm, be confident and enjoy playing. You will be the highpoint of many people’s week – especially mine!

PLAY LIST FOR APRIL 25
I know there might be a desire to miss a rehearsal after a concert, but it is important that everyone be with us on April 25th as we only have four rehearsals before our Memorial Day concert.
The Memorial Day concert will include some of the pieces we have been practicing along with new patriotic music.
If you do not have the following pieces, please download them (Gene will upload them into the system as fast as he can).
- Star Spangled Banner – arr Robert W. Smith
- This is My Country
- Seventy-Six Trombones
- America, the Beautiful – arr Stefano
- Semper Fidelis
