CONCERT NOTES •!• HEAR AND Now, continued •!• JAZZ NOTES •!• OuR MEMBERS WRITE I've had a busy and interesting month. I decided to make it my goal to visit, and sit in oil a rehearsal ·with each of the nineteen bands in the 416/ 905 areathat were listed in this column in the September issue of Wholenote. I've visited eight bands in the past year. The reception •that I've gotten has been quite pleasing, even before I identify myself. Granted, it's possible that walking into a community band rehearsal with·a bassoon in hand helps, but I'm pretty sure that warm welcome is available to anyone who is interested in getting involved in their local band. Long & McQuade Music has a series of four free clinics starting in mid November. Of particular int.ere~t to Bandstand readers are the trumpet clinic, with Mark Ridenour of the Chicago_ Symphony Qrchestra (Nov. 11, 10 a.m. - noon in room C130 at the Edward Johnson Building, U ofT) and the saxophone clinic, with Kirk MacDonald (Nov. 18, 2- 4 p.m., at the Bloor St. store.) Call Long &McQuade's at (416) 588-7886 for more info on their entire clinic series. The Newmarket Citizen's Band has recently moved their. webpage to a new and permanent home. They can now be reached at: clbl-bass/ ncb. The site has a nice, vibrant look to it, and even includes a map to the band's rehearsal location: The Hannaford Street Silver band is appearing with the Esprit Orchestra as part of the Massey Hall New Music Festival on Nov. 7. Of particular interest !o me on this program is the Michael Colgrass work "Urban Requiem" for winds and sax quartet. Trombonist extraordinaire Alain Trudel is a guest soloist for the evening, and the event is under the baton of the Esprit Orchestra's Alex Paul,
