I had good reports from Monday's rehearsal with Mr. Felberg. Thanks for that.
(Start of Mr. Moran's lecture) As we are getting close to the concert, we've come up to the point where technical passages cannot be fixed during rehearsal anymore. The only way you can get any better at the tricky spots in Verdi, Prokofiev, or Rimsky-Korsakov is for you to spend some time with your music at home and woodshed those spots. Please find some time before Monday to go through your parts and really dig in to those spots you and I know you have been faking up until now. It really only takes a short time if you are efficient and focused with your practicing. (End of Mr. Moran's lecture)
