Rehearsal Preparation:

There are only two rehearsals remaining before the concert season begins. These are important as we will be rehearsing with our vocalists and making final preparations for our performances. Please have all your music rehearsed and and ready to go for the Sunday rehearsals.

Players Needed:

The band is currently seeking qualified tuba and trumpet players to supplement these sections. If you know someone who might be interested in joining the Patriots, please contact John Knight at 440-647-6774.

Next Rehearsal:

**** There is road construction near the church and front access to the church is difficult. We recommend using the large parking lot behind (West of) the church. Please give yourself some extra time because of the construction. The church is open and the rehearsal is on! ****

IMPORTANT:  If you cannot attend a rehearsal, please alert your section mates and contact John at 440-647-6774 immediately!

Mark Your Calendars:

The Patriots 2017 Christmas Concert is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, December 9th.

OMEA Concert Recordings Available

A CD recording of our 2017, OMEA concert is available for purchase. CDs will be sold at our next rehearsal at break-time for $14 each.

Text Message Notification Service:

We have set up a Twitter account for the Patriots band to send emergency text messages to cell phones of band members. The Patriots website will remain the primary means of communicating information to band members, but text messages will give us a way to communicate last minute notices like a rained out concert or a rehearsal cancelled due to bad weather.
