NEW 29 Scene Change – Cut last six bars (bagpipes will take over).
31 Exit Music – Have all songs prepared. We’ll probably end up doing #3 “Almost Like Being In Love”.

Percussionist Notes
15 – Play chimes starting 6 measures from end. Will be cued over music. Should sound like church wedding bells. Sparse hits, use your judgement – just alludes to wedding bells.
17 – End of 17 as music has stopped. Drum roll – When Mr. Lundie says “Ay lad, ye’re married” then play full on wedding bells solo. Both will be cued.
25 – Funeral – Play snare roll under first part with bagpiper. Then bagpiper plays solo with dancer. At end of dance as they exit you will play light timpani hits – will be cued. End section will be: hit – hit – long roll – several hits (all soft as cued).

16 – Play “Itchy Fingers” style when timpani stops. Will be obvious. Orchestra stops and timpani plays solo for 4 bars, then you come in. This is the “Entrance of the Clans”.
25 – FROM STAGE – Funeral – You enter on the last chord of 24b (Dance music) and play a Funeral Procession with a snare roll under you. Make a definite stop, then begin the Funeral Dance (solo dancer will perform to your music). You will exit stage with funeral procession.

  • Conrad —

    I’d be glad to do the MV performances (trombone) at McIntyre Hall.

    Saturday mornngs I have students ’til 12 (or sometimes just ’til 10), so I may need to arrive late. Would that work out?

  • Conrad:

    Please read your email and let me know about those dates. Also, would you post the rehearsals for Brigadoon in Kirkland? Thanks for picking up my tether for my bass. (I usually use my own stool, which is the reason that I forgot to take it. Sorry)
