Vivary Park Concert

This coming Sunday 23rd June is the open-air concert in Vivary Park (Upper High St, Taunton TA1 3SX), commencing at 3pm. Please allow plenty of time to get there by 2.30pm for setting up. There is parking opposite, but please be aware that tier 1 closes at 5pm. (Anne was locked in last year!) Also, it may be a good idea to check whether there are any events taking place in Taunton that may affect volume of traffic.

Uniform Code

Please do ensure that you’ve read Anne’s email about our uniform code – it’s important that our image reflects our high standard of performance.

Insurance

Valerie issued a handout informing members of the need to insure their own personal belongings (instruments etc), as the band’s own insurance does not cover members’ personal items.

CD Recording

Sunday 8th September (10am to 5pm) has been agreed for the additional recordings for our CD ie, Oregon and Spartacus, and potentially some other bits and pieces. Again it will take place in Barrington Village Hall. There will be a rehearsal on Tuesday 3rd September, in Langport in place of Thursday 5th, and an additional rehearsal in Barrington on Friday 6th.

Get well soon wishes go out to all band members who were/are unwell – we wish you all a speedy recovery.

Brian announced that Mike Hall had finished editing the CD and that, in his opinion. it sounded really good. He would still like us to re-record Oregon and Spartacus as both of those pieces were not up to our usual standard, and perhaps also record The Water is Wide.

David proposed the weekend of 27/28 July ie, Saturday afternoon and evening for set-up and rehearsal, then recording all day Sunday. Unfortunately a number of players said they were unable to attend that weekend; David, Mike and Brian would liaise with Barrington Hall to find some alternative dates. However, band members were asked to pencil 27/28 July into their diaries, just in case.

Brian also asked that band members look at their parts in Oregon and Spartacus over the coming week.
