Final YO Monday Rehearsal and Movie/Pizza Night

Happy Friday Youth Orchestra!


Well I can't believe it but our final Monday rehearsal is finally here!  We've put a lot of work into sharpening our skills and the time to show it is almost here.  Expect to do a lot of running this Monday.  Take this last week and practice, practice, practice!!!!  The main theme of last Monday's rehearsal was subito piano/pianissimo.  Please make sure you work on every one!  Measure 106 and 196 in the Rossini; 3rd bar of number 11, 3rd bar of number 14, and 3rd bar of number 20 in the Gallop of the Comedians; number 40 in the Pantomime of the Comedians; number 82 and number 83 in the Epilogue of the Comedians; number 10 and 2 before number 19 in Sinfonia Piccola.  That's a lot of suddenly-soft dynamic markings!  Please work on these before Monday.  


Next Friday, 4/26 is our pizza party!  From 7pm-9pm-ish we will be hanging out at the AYSP building for our last get together before putting on an awesome concert on the 28th.  Please RSVP via email to and if you have a movie suggestion (something that wins popular opinion and is rated PG-13 or under) please include it!  I will also have a sign up sheet at Monday's rehearsal.
