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 currently have the following pieces in it.  Order is not important at the moment, but will be finalised before the next performance.

  1. Italian Holiday - Robert Longfield  
  2. Eric Clapton On Stage - arr Paul Murtha  
  3. Street Tango - Astor Piazzolla (arr Robert Longfield)  
  4. Summertime - George Gershwin (arr Robert Longfield)

  6. Georgia on my Mind - Hoagy Carmichael (arr Michael Brown)  
  7. Jitterbug - Robert Buckley
