Inspiration for the Strings

Submitted by Cindy Ebner

I had an idea today to help myself get into the music more and see it with the dance or movie it is in to get a better feel for it.    I thought maybe we could put the following on the website and let people know they are there for inspiration and ideas.

Last thing is for you regarding playing in synchronous movements that I thought you might like.

Ella Fitzgerald – It don’t mean a thing

Submitted by Abyemabi

Good morning, I want to share this with you, I came across this on a site called “Trombone Place”. The tempo is seriously fast and impressive, Miss Ella is incredible, I heard when she scats it’s because she forgot the words, true or not, it fits the songs she sings, she is a songstress to the highest magnitude.

Have a wonderful day. Abyemabi

Summer Picnic July 29, 2023

Thank you to all of the board members and members who had a hand in organizing, setting up, grilling and cleaning up during the picnic. It takes lots of thought and planning to put on a special event like the one we had today! The performances were a delight, food was excellent and I got to meet some new people. Thanks again for a delightful afternoon. I had a blast! — Submitted by Debbie Withnell (Percussion)

A message from Abyemabi (Trombone)

To fellow band mates, I am looking forward to today’s concert, I consider it a privilege to be able to perform with you, it’s great to see Dave back with us again. Each time we have a concert I have sleepless nights going over the music, where Jim is correcting different parts of the songs like-Do Wa, Dit-Dit-Da, that’s pretty crazy right! But I enjoy working with you all, I appreciate the help that different ones give. I reflect on the commemoration ceremony we did, I will always look on that ceremony differently for the rest of my life.

I love music, it has helped me to be more creative, to share what I feel through music.
I am excited and looking forward to todays performance.

Sincerely, fellow music lover

Abyemabi Kwalume
