Yolo Community Band (Woodland Community College Band)

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.

New information regarding schedule and concert dress (updated 4/2/17)

Carnegie T-shirts:  Here is the most recent link that Bobby sent out for Carnegie T-shirt sizes. If you didn't sign up already, please do so ASAP!  Even if you used one of the initial links that were sent out (which didn't work for many people), you should also make sure that you sign up here as well. We don't have information about whether the sizes are Men's or Women's....most likely unisex sizing, so make your best guess.

 

Carnegie Music

From Bobby's email:
 
 

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.

 

Carnegie

Mare Tranquillitatis

Blue Shades

Tempered Steel

Italian in Algiers

Lucky 2 March

Fanfare for Golden Sky

One Beautiful Life

Danzon

 

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!

Bobby
