Can we meet and rehearse the Cheetham at 6:00 PM a few of the upcoming weeks? Let's talk about it at rehearsal on Monday.
AOTEA YOUTH SYMPHONY HOSTING
We will be hosting the AOTEA Youth Symphony from Auckland, New Zealand from Wednesday afternoon, April 15 - Saturday morning, April 18. Those of you who have already volunteered to host musicians will receive confirmation emails from me in the next week, with your students' information and their schedule.
If you did not sign up to host students, but would like to, we still have need for families to host boys. Let me know if you are interested.
That week of the AOTEA visit, on Thursday, April 16, we will be hosting a dinner and having a performance exchange at AYSP with our guests. This is for ALL Youth Symphony musicians, so please put it on your calendar right away. The schedule is as follows:
5:00 - meal together at AYSP
6:30 - performance exchange (they perform for us and we perform for them) in Marie Robertson Rehearsal Hall
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.
