It was a pleasure working with the winds on Monday and Ms. Velasco said the same of the strings. I hope you enjoyed your work in sectionals.
As I discussed with the winds on Monday, I can't stress the importance of listening to professional recordings of the pieces you are working on. Not only will listening to give you a clear idea of the sound we are aiming for, but also to hear how your individual part fits in to the whole. Following are a few of my favorite links to recordings of your YCO pieces:
Please take the time this week to listen to each of these in order to prepare for next Wednesday's rehearsal.
Have a great weekend!
