Providing information about the Yolo Community Band.
Welcome to the Yolo Community Band Website.
The Yolo Community Band is a group of musicians of all ages who come together to rehearse and perform at venues in Yolo County and beyond. Our director is Bobby Rogers of Pioneer High School. We have musicians from Zamora, Woodland, Winters, West Sacramento, Sacramento, Esparto, Dunnigan, Davis, and Capay. To learn a little more about us, click here.

We are turning into the Woodland Community College Band.
YCB has rehearsals Tuesday nights from 7pm to 9pm at Pioneer High School in Woodland.
YCB is performing at Carnegie Hall in June 2017. For information click here.
Rehearsal time change
Rehearsals are changing to Wednesdays from 7pm - 9:30pm. First rehearsal is Jan 11. Rehearsals are at PHS.
Here is what I am still considering for Carnegie. It depends on the first 2 rehearsals when we return as to what I choose for Carnegie. Carnegie is 30 minutes on and off stage. The other 2 concerts are more relaxed with an hour of performance time.
I already sent play list in previous email.
Italian in Algiers
Lucky 2 March
Fanfare for Golden Sky
One Beautiful Life
The top 3 we spoke about for Carnegie are:
Italian in Algiers 8:15
Mare Tranquillitatis 6:45
Blue Shades 10:21
That’s about 26 minutes of music.
For next week, I will be running the potential Carnegie set list, plus Lucky 2 and Fanfare for a Golden Sky.
My hope is that you have been listening to listening examples or finding your own. You should have measure numbers in ALL pieces by first rehearsal.
I also believe I gave tempo marking to everything in rehearsal, I will review that first rehearsal.
See you next week!
