East Bay Summer Youth Ensemble Announcements

 

The East Bay Summer Youth Ensemble is beginning its 27th summer season. The East Bay Summer Youth Ensemble is a 114-piece summer wind ensemble which last year performed in the Bristol and Warren Summer Concert Series, a collaborative concert with the Rhode Island Philharmonic Youth Wind Ensemble in Seekonk, MA as well as for the end of the season “A Night at the Pops” Concert in Somerset, MA. The ensemble consists of students from East Providence, Barrington, Bristol, Warren, Portsmouth, Tiverton, Swansea, Somerset, Seekonk and beyond. It is open to students entering grades 7-12 who are serious musicians looking to improve upon their skills over the summer.

 

We will hold our first rehearsal of our 27th season in the band room at Somerset Berkley Regional High School located at 625 County Street in Somerset, MA on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 from 5:45 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Rehearsals are held every Wednesday until mid-August. The band room at SBRHS is perfectly sized for our rehearsals, is acoustically balanced and has plenty of music stands &chairs for everyone. However, we will use the Chorus Room as a storage room for your cases and a staging area for you to get ready for rehearsal. Parents can wait in the hallway and listen to rehearsal. Chairs and wifi are available. As well we have lots of percussion equipment at our disposal! We will have a concert at the Bristol Town Common in July, an early August concert at the Burr’s Hill Bandshell in Warren, R.I. and our season will conclude with a mid-August performance at our 12th Annual “A Night at the Pops” Concert on August 3rd.

 

Registration is $50.00 (checks payable to EBSWE) and is due at one of the first two rehearsals.  If for some reason you cannot attend the Wednesday, May 16th rehearsal, just register at the next rehearsal.  Directions to Somerset Berkley Regional High School are available on the Directions Page within this site. Please bring a pencil to each rehearsal. Also be sure to tell any interested and motivated friends in your band about EBSYE; the more the merrier! Also, information regarding auditions for the EBSWE will be available at the first rehearsal. I hope to see you on May 16th!

Dear EAST BAY SUMMER WIND ENSEMBLE Member,

I hope all has been going well for you since last summer! Believe it or not, it is that time of year again as The East Bay Summer Wind Ensemble is beginning rehearsals for its 43rd Summer Season of music. We will rehearse in the band room at Somerset Berkley Regional High School in Somerset, Massachusetts. Our first rehearsal of the season will take place on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 from 7:15 p.m. – 9:15 p.m. in the band room. Please see the directions on the back of this letter to get to the school. Parking is available in the student parking lot on the south side of the campus behind the police and fire stations. Entrance to the parking lot is via Clifford M. Holland Road. To enter the building, walk around the building towards the football field and enter the building through door W8. The Chorus Room will be ahead of you on the left and will be used as our storage room for cases. Set up there and proceed to the Band Room. Rooms are clearly labeled and there are signs throughout the building. Updates will be posted on www.ebswe.org throughout the season. Additionally, pictures and performance recordings from previous seasons are on-line as well. Starting this season, we will be disseminating all information on the BAND app. It Is a free app that you can download from the app store or access on the internet at http://band.us Once you have an account, just search for East Bay Summer Wind Ensemble. The app includes all rehearsal and performance dates in our calendar, allows me to post information immediately accessible to you with notifications on your phone, allows you to post questions in the forum, and much more. It is the easiest way for me to disseminate information to all members instantaneously and in one place. Please download the app on to your mobile devise.

Again this year, in order to cut down on the amount of time that registration sets us back at the first rehearsals, I am going to offer a pre-registration option. Attached to this email is a form that you can send back to me to pre-register for the season (please mail to EBSWE - 17 Naomi Street - Bristol, RI 02809). The registration fee this year will be $50 and you can pre-purchase EBSWE Folios ($20) and Performance Polo Shirts ($45) as well. Please remember that you still can register at the first rehearsal and you will have the first two rehearsals in which you can order your folio and polo. With this option however, I foresee us spending less time on logistics and more time on rehearsing as our first concert will be at the Bristol 4th of July Concert Series on Monday, June 25, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. More information regarding (1) The Youth Ensemble, and (2) Trailer Advertisement Placard Flyers is located on-line! Please review that information before our first rehearsal!

I would also like to extend an invitation to any of you that are interested in helping out The East Bay Summer Youth Ensemble by performing with and assisting the group at rehearsals and performances. Many members perform with the group on secondary instruments as a way to enhance their music skills. No additional fee is charged for this participation, so if you are interested in joining us, please let me know at the first EBSWE rehearsal as the youth group does not begin rehearsing until the next week. We will need the help this year as EBSYE will hold an exchange concert early in the season on June 30th with the Rhode Island Philharmonic Youth Wind Ensemble in Seekonk, MA. We will need some EBSWE sit ins to help us be ready so soon in the season!

Please feel free to print, distribute and/or display the attached/enclosed recruitment posters. I am extremely excited to see you all again for what promises to be a very exciting and memorable season. Please call me at the above number or send me an email at marshalld@sbregional.org if you have any questions or concerns regarding the ensemble or the season. Enjoy your spring and we will see you on May 16th!
