Black playout folder

Your playout folder should be a black plastic A4 display folder (one of those folders with the clear pockets, available from most $2 shops).  The intention is to provide a fairly uniform view of the members' music stands, so keep it on your stand throughout the performance, even if you remove the individual charts to play them.

Your folder should contain the following pieces, in this order:

  1. Italian Holiday - Robert Longfield  
  2. Eric Clapton On Stage - arr Paul Murtha  
  3. Street Tango - Astor Piazzolla (arr Robert Longfield)  
  4. Un Petit Café à Paris - Jeremy Bell  
  5. Cartoon Symphony - arr Larry Clark  
  6. Country Gardens - Percy Grainger (arr Brant Karrick)  
  7. Jitterbug - Robert Buckley    
  8. Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen (arr Michael Brown) §
