Dear YS,

Thank you for a great concert yesterday! We made such huge strides on a very challenging program since August...I can't wait to get started with our Spring Concert rep in January.

When I passed out the music for the Spring Concert, several of you mentioned that the Nabucco Overture by Verdi was something that YO played last year and that NMMEA All-State Orchestra is playing this year.  Because of that, we will not be playing that overture and will instead play Verdi's "Overture to La Forza del Destino."  They are both great pieces, but I think it would be better to play something less familiar to most of the group.

Go ahead and keep the Nabucco parts and do whatever you'd like with them. I'll have copies of the new Verdi overture for you in January. 

Enjoy your holidays and I'll see you in the New Year!

Mr. Moran
