The ever fun and exciting music sorting and Pizza will take place on June 19 at Pietro’s Pizza in Salem from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

Here’s how it works.

  1. Come to the back room of Pietros (the biggest room).
  2. Grab a black band folder and place the music that is in it on top of the band folders that are spread around the tables in Alphabetical Order.
  3. Leave some music in the folders (There is a list called THINGS THAT STAY IN FOLDERS).
  4. Give Mike any odd things you find in the folder and are not sure what to do with.
  5. Put cleared folder in box of cleared folders (not the box of unsorted folders).
  6. Repeat from step 2,
  7. Sign the list for your favorite pizza we will order about 6:15. We can not buy drinks, but you are welcome to order from the counter.

After pizza we will continue and also start putting the collected music into Score Order (There is a list called SCORE Order).

Please let me know if you plan on being there.

(Arrival time is based on your schedule. I know some of you have work and family obligations).

Pietro’s Pizza Address: 1637 Hawthorne Ave NE, Salem, OR 97301

If you have music to turn in please contact me and we’ll make arrangements or bring it on June 19 to the annual music sorting and pizza night.

Sousapalooza!

I'm an active percussionist in the Willamette Valley, and am spearheading an event for Salem's annual participation in Make Music Day, a free international music festival which always lands on June 21st, Summer Solstice. This particular event is called Sousapalooza, and is a community pop-up band that performs the music of John Philip Sousa. This year's performance will take place on the state capitol steps at 6pm. We are looking for more players and are reaching out to our entire community. Music is assigned ahead of time and there is no rehearsal. Please share with the Keizer Community Band or anyone else you think might be interested. I know that your final concert is this coming Wednesday, but if you think there might be a good time for me to pop in and make an announcement I'm happy to do so.

Thank you for your time,

Kaylee Bonatakis
