My wife Suzy has graciously offered to help the jazz ensemble and the concert band librarian catch up on some cateloging and copying of music. We recently received a generous donation of jazz ensemble music in folders by parts. Two boxes of music turns out to be around 120 songs, some of which have enough parts to be useful.
So Suzy is creating the backup copies because the original music is falling apart. Let’s do the math shall we, 120 songs times 17 parts is 2040 songs times an average of 2.5 pages is 5100 pages to copy. That’s over ten reams of paper. So Suzy is creating one copy for us to play and make a determination whether we will add it to the Woodinville Jazz Ensemble library. She has been working on this on and off for two weeks now. I’ll let you know how many of the 120 songs we actually retain.
In concert band, she currently just handing out part and managing that for the next practice session because our librarian Charlotte will be out that week. That is over 25 parts for the ten songs we are preparing for the next concert in December. Are we having fun yet.
Note: I am hoping to get the Second-story pit band music sometime this week
