Wicked April Fool's Day Idea

Rate this Entry
As you may or may not know, RCSCC CALGARY parades Monday nights. GUESS WHAT? 01/04/13 is on a Monday!!!! As the corps' music librarian I have a wicked awesome plan to play stuff that normally you'll never hear on the parade square.

PLAN

[March on] - May be in slow time depending how much music we're going to play.
Wedding March - Felix Mendelssohn

[Colours] - Can't change this for obvious reasons.
O Canada

[Inspection] Usually slow march pieces or more melodical selections.
Undecided

[March Past] - The rest of ship's company's march past is in quick time.
RAF March Past
Heart of Oak (Wondering if we should play this or not since we always do and it'll be April Fool's Day)
Colonel Bogey (?)

[Band March Past] - It's usually in quick time, but I'll ask my BandO if we can slow march.
Undecided

DISMISSED FOR TRAINING

[Sunset] - Same as colours
Sunset

[March Off] - Slow March. I'm not sure if we should play this or not... I would really like to.
Funeral March - Frederic Chopin (Piano Sonata No. 2 3rd Mvt - for concert band)

    Sounds pretty sweet. Although 1 April 2013 is a bit far from now. Try getting rid of Heart of Oak altogether.

    This year I'm gonna have something special for change of command (hopefully)... I'll probably ask the CO what he wants to hear and have a few selections of my own.

    March on Wedding March .... absolutely genious idea!!! I should tell that to our squadron's D.M although, I don't know how well it will sound with a Pipes and Drums band :P

    I was actually thinking something epic like the James Bond theme or The Final Countdown... First things first, I need a bigger band.
