This week (6/11/11) the focus is on the Panama City POPS 4th of July show at Pier Park on Panama City Beach. Quite a bit of music and variety. A couple John Williams Pieces (The Star Spangled Banner, Band of Brothers and more), end of the 1812 Overture by none other than Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Stars and Stripes Forever, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and our end of season blockbuster the ABBA Medley Arrangement.
Steve Gilmore came by and we are working on sectional rehearsals. We have played most of this before but we both know that there is only one real rehearsal before the performance and we want to be ready.
Additionally, the band leaser with the Go Big or Go Home Band has given me an entire book of songs for his group. So that goes in the mix as well. Lots of shedding to do!
