YO Notes for 4/2

Spring Break

No rehearsal 3/26!  Enjoy your break.  Please use some of your extra time to up you practice amount on our YO repertoire.  We only have 4 rehearsals left and much work to do!

Listening Examples

I have attached links to our pieces.  Please listen to them and study them several times.  I always enjoy playing my part along with a recording to see how my part fits with the rest of the group. 


Everyone needs some work with the metronome.  There are several places in some of the pieces, especially the Polka, where I would like to play with the time a bit.  However, we need to have a solid foundation and play steady and together first.

The 2018-2019 season audition information is online.  Audition spots are filling up quickly so register for your audition today!  We would love to take even MORE students in each orchestra, so encourage your friends to audition.  There is room for more!
