Musical Notes for 5/4 - May the Fourth/Force be with you for AUDITIONS!

Hello YCO Families -

Although I'm not sure what day it is, the date is 5/4, so happy unofficial Star Wars day!  Go hug a baby Yoda!

Deadline for submitting your audition video is this Saturday and don't forget about Mom on Sunday.  We'll have our weekly chat on Wednesday and in the mean time take a moment to check out the recording video below of the first movement from Beethoven Symphony 3 -

Again, a classic recording featuring Bernstein and the Vienna Philharmonic.  LvB broke pretty much all the rules regarding Sonata Allegro form in this movment.  From the perspective of history, much more of his innovative musical thought was to come.   What is your favorite Beethoven coposition.  Why?  No wrong answer here, I would just love to know.

Take care, get out and move - it always makes you feel better.
