Ten players at training band this evening. Nicola's nearly ready to start playing tenor horn in the band so, for this evening, just sat in for a listen. A few weaknesses were discovered, in the repertoire, but nothing that can't be ironed out with some cornet practice at home.
The Can-Can was abandoned before it started, not enough copies for the players. On reflection, perhaps this was for the best. If played with gusto, some might have been moved to dance which, given the company, could have led to terrible discrepancies!
