Dear Junior Orchestra Students and Parents,


Happy New Year! We hope you had a restful and enjoyable winter break.


After the successes of our School Tour and Eldorado concerts, we are looking forward to continuing our work together towards what promises to be a musically rewarding second semester!


We are excited about the music we will be preparing for the Popejoy concert in April and encourage you to pick it up between now and next week so you can practice it before the next rehearsal on Saturday, January 19th. Your music can be picked at Robertson & Sons Violin Shop (on Carlisle, between Comanche and Candelaria) as follows:


Strings: starting Tuesday, January 8

Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion: starting Saturday, January 12


Robertson & Sons Violin Shop is open Tuesday-Friday from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm and Saturday from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.


You should focus your practicing on "Rosamunde Overture" and "The Sorcerer's Apprentice". 


We are looking forward to seeing you at our first rehearsal of the semester on Saturday, January 19th!


Mrs. Robertson and Mr. Austell
