Hello Junior Banders!

For those of you who are coming off of spring break, I hope you had an excellent week off. We have three rehearsals (yes, three!) left until our concert.

For this weekend, please continue polishing our 4 concert pieces: Falcon Fanfare, Two Colonial Sketches, Of Distant Peaks, and Star Wars. Remember, we want to perform with no wrong notes or rhythms so keep the praciticing up! Also, at this point in time, it would be a good idea to play along with the recordings; it'll help prepare you for our big performance!

Lastly, I would like to let all of you know that if you enjoyed your time this semster (which I hope you did) auditions for next year's Albuquerque Youth Symphony groups are open right now! If you are an 8th grader ready to enter high shool or a 6th or 7th grader who is interested in partcipating again there's something for you. Auditions in May are geared toward the symphonic orchestras, so you can get an opportunity to play with strings as well as winds and percussion. If you have questions, we can talk about it on Saturday.

Have a wonderful week and I'll see you all in a few days!

Ms. G
