It was wonderful to see you all at our orientation/rehearsal on Saturday. We hope you made several new friends and had a good time! We are excited for the new year!
We made a lot of progress on Saturday. Even though not all of you had seen the music before, we were able to read through 2 pieces entirely plus a chorale! Good job!
Before the next rehearsal, please listen to the music online! When searching for the music, be sure you put in the title, composer and arranger. You should be able to find exactly the music you have in the folder. Play the recording several times with your music in hand so you know how your part fits in with the whole orchestra. Before the next rehearsal, look over the “Freedom Finale” and “Barcarolle”. I think you will recognize the melodies in both of these pieces!
We look forward to having the entire orchestra present on Saturday! It is going to be a great year! Don’t forget to arrive early with your instrument (all tuned), music stand, and pencil.
See you on Saturday!
