'marchestra' - sheet music

Thanks, folks. I'm glad you appreciate the charts.

I've had minimal success actually getting a mArchestRa to perform. We had
one "march" through Central Park with a small ensemble. It was fun, but I
was hoping for more.

My initial idea was a group of around 20 musicians/singers/dancers spreading
the joy of Mr. Ra's music through various parts of the city simply for the
fun of it and for the entertainment/bewilderment of the public.

Maybe this spring I'll give it another go...

-Rob

don't give up! I did something similar on the Kew Beach in Toronto on a
vernal equinox back in the 80's, we played Enlightenment from charts I'd
passed around at jam sessions, and about 9 or 10 musicians showed up, half a
dozen dancers and some art college students, it was a blast and really threw
some joy into the park.

but you have to keep at it. consider here what Derek Siver's has to say
about how to make a movement happen in under 3 minutes:
