Hello Youth Orchestra!!

I’m so sorry I missed you all last rehearsal.  It was unplanned but I hope you had fun with Ms. Maniaci!  I will see you all again next rehearsal but tonight, which WAS planned, Mr. Nesbitt will be your guest conductor.  Working with different mentors and getting multiple points of view is a wonderful thing for musical development.  Mr. Nesbitt is the conductor of the Youth Concert Orchestra and you are all very fortunate to work with him!  Enjoy another break from me and I will see you all next rehearsal.  Keep up the good work, your efforts are really showing in rehearsal.  I knew you could handle this program!  

6:15-6:35  James Dean

6:35-6:55  Bach

6:55-7:30  Carmen


7:45-8:15  Ironsides

8:15-8:30  1812 Overture


Reminder that luminarias are due today!  Have fun!  See you next rehearsal!  Email me if you need ANYTHING!

Mr. Upton
