Next Monday's rehearsal will begin with sectionals from 6:15-7:45pm. When you arrive, please head straight to your sectional room to warm up. Break will run from 7:45-8:00pm. After break I expect you all to be in your seats ready to play by 8:00pm. We will end our evening with full rehearsal from 8:00-9:00pm.
This week's assignments:
Please review the spots you worked on at our lock-in sectionals, plus make time this week to specifically prepare Alasdroim. Following is a link to the Mid-Michigan Youth Symphony performing it, but as I mentioned in rehearsal, their tempo at ms.19 is much slower than we will be taking it. Please prepare this section at dotted-quarter=96. Having this link to listen to will help you hear how your part fits in to the whole.
Along with Alasdroim, please spend 10-15 minutes each day this week listening to our other repertoire. I cannot express how important this is in your preparation.
Just a reminder that chair auditions for strings will take place during sectionals on Monday, August 31st, so please continue to prepare. You will not be assigned specific passages for preparation. Be prepared for everything.
If you have any questions, feel free to email or call.
We rely on donations from generous individuals and businesses like you to provide symphonic performance experiences to Albuquerque’s talented young musicians and access to music education for students in need.
