Retreat Schedule

This is our latest draft of the retreat schedule. I've had questions, so I just wanted to get it out to you, even if it's not completely finalized. It will likely change very little. I've also attached a PDF for easy printing.

Thanks,

Julie

Mendelssohn Measure Numbers

Hi Folks!

I've done a little study of the measure numbers in the Mendelssohn violin concerto. This will help you with your project which needs to be finished before this Saturday. Put a number at the beginning of each line in your music, and at every letter. If you already have measure numbers on your music (lucky!), put the following numbers at each letter. Then we'll all be on the same page!

Here are the numbers:

A -  25
B -  47
C -  72
D -  113
E -  131
F -  168
G -  206
H -  239
I -  255
Cadenza - 299 (this section with the fermata is worth 19 measures)
Measure after cadenza -  318
K -  351
L -  377
M -  414
N -  453
Piu Presto -  473
Presto -  493
Tutti -  513

Thanks!

Julie & Mr Dunn

Chamber Orchestra T-Shirt Orders

Hello!

Here is the link to order T-Shirts.


Remember, all musicians get a T-Shirt on us, so everyone needs to fill this out. 

When you fill out the form, you will be asked your size, and to choose a T-Shirt color from this list: Black, Navy Blue, Forest Green, Dark Purple, Hot Pink, and Dark Heather Gray. 

There will be a link on the "submitted" screen where you can submit another form to choose shirts for other people, just in case your mom or grandpa or your beloved black lab decide they want one too. (If you do that, bring the money (or a check written to LBSS) to rehearsal and turn it in asap; extra shirts $10, hoodies $25)

Keep in mind that these are regular, unisex T-Shirts, as you choose your size. (FYI: The youth XL is wider and shorter than the adult S.)

Chamber Retreat Directions & Schedule

We are so excited for our Retreat!
This Saturday!! October 14th!!
Please arrive and be ready to start rehearsal at 10:00 am.
We will eat lunch around noon and fill in the rest of the time with fun games and rehearsals.
We will end at 4:00.

DIRECTIONS
To find a map from your location:
Google "earley park lds camp"
Click on "directions"
This will pull up a Google map from your location.
There are 3 entrances into Earley Park.
1. There is an entrance off of Hwy 38. There is a small wooden sign that says Earley Park and a dirt road that goes east up into the hills. This road is fine to take but will require you to drive a little longer on a dirt road.
2. There is an entrance on Hwy 30 approximately 3 miles east of the Hwy 38 and Hwy 30 junction. There is also a small wooden sign that says Earley Park.
3. There is another entrance on Hwy 30. This entrance is 3.8 miles east of the Hwy 38 and Hwy 30 junction. It is on 2400 N. There is a large wooden sign that says Earley Park.
All 3 of these entrances will require you to drive a short way up into the park, but just follow the signs and you'll get there just fine.

NUYS Retreat Cabin Assignments

Hi Folks!

Please fill out this form. You can assist me in my current project of assigning where you will sleep on the retreat by taking less than two minutes to do this!

Also, if you are interested in joining us but haven't recorded your audition video, come to rehearsal anyway! We'd rather know what your plans are, and whether you are coming or not, than wait for a video.

See you Saturday for regular rehearsal, 8:30 to 11:00. Deep gratitude to those who have been arriving early to help set up... My heroes!

Thanks again,

Julie Gardner
Manager

PS  Here is a copy and paste link for the form if the one above doesn't work:
