As we enter our final three rehearsals of the season, I want to thank you for your dedication to making the Concert Orchestra a success again this year. We have some more work to do in order to get ready for the final concert. You all know what sections of which pieces you need the most focus on in order to improve our performance, so I am asking you to make sure to find time to practice those places at home, so in rehearsal we can spend our time on ensemble improvements.

Thank you in advance for your donations to the Concert Orchestra’s gift to the Aurra Gardner Scholarship Fund. We will collect one more time on April 12, and then turn in our donation.

Those of you selling raffle tickets, thank you as well for your help in supporting the AYSP.

Finally, I want to encourage all of you to audition for next year’s AYSP orchestras. I feel that this organization has so much to offer all of you as you grow as young musicians.
