What an amazing rehearsal! These guys are really clocking it, and I have rarely seen such concentration. Please give them each a warm hug and a high five! And then tell them to practice!
Seriously, we as musicians all need to practice no matter what. It is always a case of overlearning, just to ensure that the music will be able to flow in all scenarios.
The order of the program is:
Ode to Joy
Mighty Molla March
Baile en la Calle
Bach Country Fiddles
Pomp and Circumstance
At this stage of rehearsal, individual sections do not become as important for the whole group, rather each student needs to find his/her challenging spots and go after them, and overpractice them. I am encouraging them all to put a large "X" in the margin of any line that has challenges, and to KEEP PRACTICING!
I will have a flyer and details to hand out and to attach here next week.
