Rehearsal notes

Hello YO!
I want to thank you for all your hard work so far.  Some really nice things happened in our last rehearsal and I’m excited to see what happens next!  As a reminder, everyone needs to measure your parts, especially the Polka.  In your preparation this week, please see the below listed rehearsal schedule and spots.  I will be doing spot checks and asking stands of players or individuals to play short excerpts in front of the group when necessary.

Halo Auditions
I need the guitarists and pianists auditioning for Halo to meet me before rehearsal starting at 5:30pm.  Guitarists please bring your instrument and amp.  Please find me in the Conductor’s Office at 5:30.  If you are late you will need to find me in the practice rooms in between auditions.  
Have a wonderful, productive and fun week.  I will see you Monday,
Mr. Upton
