Varsity Band spent some time in sectionals looking at Old Churches by Michael Colgrass, and then today sight-read through the piece as an ensemble for the first time.
Over our next few rehearsals we are going to be looking at different types of notation systems. Did you know that music hasn't always been written on the 5 line staff?
There are two videos that I'd like you to check out to help extend your understanding, both of different notation systems, but also related to how polyphony developed. You should watch them before next week, so that you can have a leg up in rehearsal.
This blog is intended to serve as a collection of announcements and information for current students and their families.
