Member Newsletter – February 2021

Hi Everyone,

Here is the latest Sharon Bands news!

New Website

Work has been progressing on our new website, thanks to Glenn McGibbon. He presented the latest changes at the last board meeting and it’s looking good so far! It was very exciting to see the new developments.

Virtual Playlists

In addition to work on the new website, Glenn put together a Virtual Jazzy Valentine playlist on Soundcloud. It was posted to social media, our website and sent to our email list to keep us engaged with our audience during these pandemic times. If you haven’t seen it already, head over to our website, sharonbands.org to check it out.

Plans are also in the works for an upcoming Virtual Celtic Celebration playlist as well!

Rehearsals and Summer Concerts

Steve and the board have been discussing rehearsal possibilities for this year, provided it is safe to get together and the current gathering limits increase. We’ll look into rehearsal space for RSBB initially. The Sons of Italy in Quincy is a possibility for RSBB to rehearse in the future. We are looking into outdoor options for SCB once the weather permits.

We have the following summer concert dates:

July 11th – RSBB in Hopkinton

July 18th – SCB in Norwood

July 25th – RSBB in Norwood

Of course, this is subject to change due to Covid.

Library

Currently, our music library is being housed at the Ames Free Library in Easton. There’s a possibility that we may not have access to this space any longer at some point this year. We are hoping to not lose this space, but if we do, we will need to look into other options. If anyone has any ideas of free or very cheap storage options in the Sharon area, please let us know.

Next Board Meeting

Our next board meeting will be via Zoom on Monday, March 8th at 7:00 pm. Members are always welcome to attend. Just reply to this email if you’d like to receive the meeting link for March.
