12:00 PM – informal family/corps picnic at the large shelter west of the Band Shell in the City Park in Geneseo (between State St and Center St). If you would like to attend just bring what you would like to eat for a picnic lunch. (please be aware that Geneseo City Parks have a no alcohol ordinance) The grill options are limited.
1:30 PM – Sectionals for Brass Percussion and Guard – Weather permitting we will be in the shade. There are many areas around the park to spread out and rehearse. BRASS – If you want to be able to sit please bring a lawn chair. We will perform standing but may need sit time in between.
Non-participants may observe or there are other possibilities in town including the Park District’s new swimming pool, golf at Maple Bluff Golf Course, Geneseo Museum, Hennenpin Canal bike paths and walking. Richmond Hill Park is at the south end of town and there is plenty of room at the park for softball, soccer, tennis,etc.
3:30 PM-5:00 PM full corps putting together the dress rehearsal for the park later, and ultimately the Banquet show Sunday evening.
5:00 PM – dinner, either another picnic or one of the many fast food places or restaurants in town.
7:30 PM (be at gathering spot behind the band shelter at 6:30 PM) – Geneseo High School Band performs at 7 PM doing their Celebration of the Knights show that they have just learned. We will be able to listen to them. Then….
Full run through “dress rehearsal” at the City Park Ice Cream Social with audience. Geneseo Performing Arts Council will be serving the deserts. Press releases have been put out about this concert. Brass and Percussion will wear black shirts or black Knights t-shirts. Reunion t-shirt is fine as are the past black shirts. Khaki or jean pants or shorts are okay. Post dress rehearsal (approx. 8:30) will be social time.
