Dear Band,
Our concert is confirmed, 25 Apr 10, 5pm at NAFA Lee Foundation Theatre.

Repertoire :
  • The Enemy God and the Dance of the Spirits
  • Of Castles and Legends
  • Pavane
  • You Are So Beautiful
  • Hymn to the Infinite Sky
  • Selections from Starlight Express
  • Spain
  • Miss Saigon
  • Gelato con Caffe
  • Disco Kid (TBC)
  • So-ran Bushi ~Rock Version~
As you can see, we've got a lot of work to do.
J1s who are new to their instruments, you'll be joining us for the first two songs, so please work hard.
The rest of us will be playing every song, with the exception of Pavane and You Are So Beautiful, where only those selected by Mr. Lim are involved.

As you already know, Band practices will end at 10pm starting this week.
I believe it shows that Mr. Lim is willing to put in some extra effort into preparing us for our concert.
And so, we should do the same.
J2s should remember Mr. Lim saying that when he comes, he doesn't expect to solve individual problems. Which mean notes and rhythm are our responsiblity to solve, so if you don't know or are unsure, ask.

To learn and hopefully perfect 10+ songs in around 20 practices is no easy feat. Coupled with homework and tests, it becomes even harder. But for us to enjoy our concert, and for our audience to enjoy our concert, we need to put in the extra effort.
And together, we shall make our concert a success.
