You kids are the BEST!!!! What a fantastic rehearsal we had on Monday. What impressed me most was your incredible willingness to work hard and handle our rehearsal like professionals….and we still had fun making music together.

We have 4 rehearsals left so a big push now towards our goal. Please spend time on those difficult passages and also spend time on the beautiful lyrical passages….especially in the Mascagni and Copland.

Our guest conductor will be working with you on R & J so revisit those spots that we worked on Monday night and start to play through the piece.

Keep cleaning Russian Sailor’s Dance….especially Var VIII

Slavonic Dance- this is in pretty good shape we just have to keep cleaning and firm up the transitions.

BRAVO Brass and Percussion on the Armed Forces Salute. Keep working on that and it will be outstanding!!!

Have a GREAT week everyone and let’s get ready for an amazing rehearsal next week.

Keep Practicing!!!! (-:
