      #################################
      Hi all! Our next two gigs are coming right up.
      If you need a night out (and who doesn't!), make
      your reservations now for Downtown Restaurant.
      It's a beautiful restaurant with fabulous food.
      The music will be pretty good, too. :) If you
      want to learn something about a cappella music
      and hear a bunch of great groups, come to the
      West Coast A Cappella Summit next weekend.
      (Also, more info below.)

      And, as always, thank you for
      your continuing support!

      Saturday, November 6
      West Coast A Cappella Summit
      San Rafael, California
      Daytime events at the Showcase Theater.
      Evening Concert at Veteran's Auditorium
      both at The Marin Center

      Clockwork is performing for the daytime showcase
      AND
      leading two classes during the day.

      Basic Arranging
      Stephen will lead a general skills workshop for vocal arrangers, but
      also applicable for any grouping of single-line instruments (horns,
      strings, etc.). He will be discussing the various decisions an
      arranger has to make and look at some of the techniques an arranger
      can use to come up with something new from an existing song. He will
      also look at what it takes to accurately transcribe a song from an
      audio recording, since this is usually the first step in coming up
      with a new arrangement. This portion of the session will include
      recognizing chord types and their functions, accurately transcribing
      melodies, when to be precise and when to simplify, and other tips to
      get musical ideas down on paper.

      The Neal Cruz Workshop
      Neal was a friend of ours who died in a hang-gliding accident last
      June. This is our tribute to his memory.

      Members of Clockwork and The Pacific Mozart Ensemble (PME)
      established the Neal Cruz Arranging Workshop and the Neal Cruz Fund
      in 2004 to honor the memory of Neal Cruz, a Bay Area singer and
      arranger with groups including PME, Quintessence, Artists in
      Resonance at UC Berkeley, and the Cal Jazz Choir.

      This workshop will focus on intensive examination and performance of
      a handful of submitted arrangements. Professional musicians from Bay
      Area a cappella groups, including the Pacific Mozart Ensemble and
      Clockwork, will perform the arrangements, and our clinician, Stephen
      Saxon, will suggest improvements. Then the singers will demonstrate
      the updates on-the-fly, by performing the revised arrangement.


      A celebration of all things a cappella, the West Coast A Cappella
      Summit is an opportunity for singers of all levels, from amateur to
      professional, to gather together and do what they do best: sing! With
      a philosophy that embraces all styles of music without instruments,
      the Summit is a forum for everyone to enjoy ­ the only
      prerequisite is
      a love of singing harmony.

      Tickets available from the Marin Center box office.
      Call 415-472-3500
      Also available online through www.ticketmaster.com
      Daytime $15. Evening concert $25.
      All weekend pass $37.50
