GREAT!!!! Rehearsal on Monday night. Thank you so much for many of you coming prepared and for having such a great attitude on our sight reading journey! I am super excited about this spring's program. No rehearsal next Monday due to the MLK Holiday but take the time to be totally prepared for your string chair auditions on Monday Jan 23rd. Winds, brass, and percussion need to be prepared on the music as well. I will be doing a wind/brass sectional that evening. It will be a blast!! Especially if we're prepared.
