Good job Monday night getting through the bulk of the Grieg. We will need to finish the 3rd movement next week and continue with Shostakovich.
Hopefully you all got through the Rhapsody and Jupiter in sectionals. Please review those two pieces for next Monday, and prepare yourself on the Festive Overture, Venus and the Introduction.
Our schedule on Monday will be as follows:
6:20pm - warm up and tune
6:30pm - Grieg 3
6:50pm - Jupiter
7:10pm - Rhapsody
7:30 - pack up chairs/stands, and go to break
7:45 - section rehearsals on Festive Overture, Venus, Introduction (reduced winds) and review Rhapsody and Jupiter, if time
9:15pm - pack up chairs/stands, and dismiss
I hope those of you back in classes this week are having a great start to the new year. I know you are settling back into your schedules, but please make time to prepare your parts. We have just two sectionals left and the concert will be here before we know it! I appreciate your passion for and dedication to music.
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.
