Youth Orchestra collaboration with Colorado Springs Youth Orchestra

Hello Youth Orchestra students and families!

We have a wonderful and exciting opportunity that I wanted to let you know about.  The Colorado Springs Youth Orchestra is touring here in Albuquerque this April and they would like to partner with us.  This collaboration would mean hosting a potluck for all, and a small performance for both the Albuquerque Youth Orchestra and the Colorado Springs Youth Orchestra.  This collaboration is a great way to meet new music contacts, show off our skills, be ambassadors of classical music, AYSP and our great city, and maybe prove once and for all that New Mexico has the best green chile! 

But I need your HELP!  

The only day that they can make it is April 4, 2020.  This is the second weeken of Spring Break and I am wondering how many members of the orchestra can be there.  Can all families please discuss this over the weekend?  It will be a lot of fun!  I am hoping most all would be back in town, if taking any trips, and that you might consider making your plans for the break with this event in mind.  We will make a decision about doing this, or not, at MONDAY’S REHEARSAL, 10/7.  Thank you in advance for discussing this important opportunity so that we can make a group decision!
