    What are you currently rehearsing?

    For our upcoming concert in August, ours is as follows (I have no idea what order):

    King Cotton (J.P. Sousa - march)
    Cole Porter Songs (symphonic arrangement by Russell Bennett)
    Sarabande and Polka (from the ballet "Solitaire")
    Selections from Mary Poppins (Irwin Kostal arrangement)
    Nessun Dorma (from Turandot - Puccini)
    A Symphony of Sit-Coms (Paul Jennings - Golden Age favorite themes)

    Brass Ensemble pieces:
    Ye Yanks and Braes (Traditional by Adrian Drover)
    Shenandoah (Clyde E. Hunt)
    Bring on the Kielbasa (Polka for brass and percussion)

    So far so good, but the air's a little too thin for me on some of the notes on my part... especially since it's been about 20 years since I last played regularly. I'm hangin' in there though and having a ball.
