Monday's rehearsal was largely unprepared and now I'm a bit nervous! I know marching band and All State auditions have been consuming your time, however, your YS music must be your priority these next 2 weeks. If there are any notes or rhythms you are unsure of, you have to become more familiar with those spots before Monday. I can't help you learn notes and rhythms in rehearsal. At this point, we need to be running our pieces and focusing on listening across the orchestra, giving positive physical motion and pulse, secure intonation, fluid phrasing, clean ends of phrases, rhythmic stabilitly, quality tone color, etc. Please don't come to rehearsal unprepared.

This week I emailed, and also handed out at rehearsal, information about our required Holiday Pops concert with the NMP as well as the optional Opera Apprenticeship with OSW. Please be sure you double check that these dates are on your family calendar.
The registration deadline for New Years Eve at the Opera! is now, so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org today if you would like to participate.
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.
