FULL ORCHESTRA – Everyone should attend

Performance – Sunday April 26th 2015 – Run Through at 10:00am – Lunch (provided) Concert begins 2:00pm

Sub Policy – You are expected to be at every rehearsal ready to play at the downbeat time listed. Emergencies do happen. You will be responsible to provide a competant sub if for some reason you cannot attend. If no sub is provided you will not be paid for that rehearsal and the deducton will be made from your check

Music – All the music will be emailed to you. I need to prepare the Bach parts for “electronic” delivery. I hope to have the parts for the Bach to you before the end of November. I hope to have the Rock and Roll parts to you by mid-January. I have 4 done now and 3 slated to be completed the end of November so I may send those out then.

Reference Recordings – MP3’s of the  Rock Tunes – Here  are the reference recordings. The orchestrations will correspond (more or less) to the recordings here. You will need to right click each song and select “Save-As” to download them.

HR Paperwork – If this is the first time working with us at Branford or you have not worked for us in the past three years there is a new Board of Education Policy. Musicians are considered “employees” of the district and thus you must fill out some forms and have a background check with fingerprinting. Its painless!! If you teach in a school then you are familiar with the process. Please click here or select the “Update Contact Form” in the Bach to Rock Orchestra Information” menu so I can mail you the paperwork. We are here to offer assistance if needed.

I’ll touch base with you all as we go along and I am looking forward to working with you soon!
