Rehearsal Notes for 4/9 and Symphonic Kitchen 4/8

Rehearsal 04/09/18

THANK YOU for a fantastic rehearsal last week! The scrambled seating was very effective in forcing us to really listen and physically give pulse to one another. This coming week when we are back in traditional seating, you must continue to focus on listening and positive physical movement. I don't want it to disappear once we are in our more familiar set up. Even though we have students visiting rehearsal, we've got to keep our focus, so come ready to work.
