Thanks for the encouragement :-)  BTW, the publisher has an mp3 of Blue

Okay, you forced it outta me . . .

Cupertino Symphonic Band 's Spring Concert
Sunday, April 14   3:00pm
Quinlan Community Center
10185 Stelling Road
Cupertino, CA

Come and listen to us play . . . if you like to hear music from a very
amateur group! Although, we have a clarinetist doing the von Weber
Concertino that I think is just terrific!

Here's our website . . .

>>BTW, the publisher has an mp3 of Blue Shades online at

Yea, I downloaded the mp3 of Blue Shades . . . we don't sound like that!

Wish us luck!
