Early Rehearsal Reminder

Greetings!

I spoke to several people individually about our adjusted rehearsal time this Saturday, but I never announced it in rehearsal, and never mentioned it in the Parent Meeting. I apologize and hope everyone gets the message in a timely manner, or notices it on the calendar; it's on both the print calendar and the google calendar.

Early Rehearsal Schedule
When: October 1, this Saturday, just this week
Time, Youth Symphony: 8 am to 10 am 
Time, Chamber Orchestra:  8:30 am to 10 am

Thanks, everyone, for your patience with me as we get this year underway. I have to admit it's been hectic, but worth it. Everyone sounded amazing Saturday!

Warmly,
Julie

FAQ for NUYS

How many checks do I need to write?
You may combine your membership fee and your retreat payment into one check, but if you are paying a tour deposit, the tour deposit must be a separate check from your membership and retreat. Be sure to write specifics in the memo.

When should I arrive this Saturday?
You should arrive at least 15 minutes before rehearsal to pick up your music and find your seat, and to help set up.

I can't come to the parent meeting. What should I do?
Be sure to turn in your paperwork (acceptance, release and payment form) and payment by the deadline. Any questions are welcome.

​I'm not sure I'm coming to the retreat.
The retreat is not optional; we expect everyone that possibly can to come to the retreat. The retreat is fun, but it's mostly about intensive rehearsal. We squeeze three rehearsals in among the games, food, skits and fun. Those rehearsals are quite important. Even if you're not sure if you're going to be able to attend the whole thing, turn in your permission slip anyway, just in case.​  I have had students come just for the rehearsals, but there's a lot of driving involved to do that. :)

​When is the Parent Meeting?
11:15 am to 12:00 noon​
​Saturday, ​September 24, 2016

​Please let me know if you have additional questions!

​And watch for the T-Shirt email in the next few days.

Julie Gardner, Manager​

NUYS 2016-2017

Greetings wonderful folks!

The NUYS Audition tab is updated and ready to use. All musicians are asked to fill out the participant information form on a yearly basis. In today's electronic world, phone numbers and emails tend to change. Thank you for your assistance with this! There is also a link to the audition appointment spreadsheet. Let's fill it up... tell your friends! 

If you played with us last year and did not graduate, you are receiving this email because I kept you from last year. If you do not want to be on this list, just reply to this email and let me know. 

Welcome to new musicians who have already filled out the participant form! It's going to be a great year!

Please stay tuned for additional information. The calendar is still being filled in as we are still negotiating venues for all our concerts. If you have a connection to, or attend a school with a nice big stage in their auditorium that might be able to host a concert in November, please contact me.

We'll see you all on September 17 for auditions, and Sept 24 for the first rehearsal followed by our parent meeting.

Thanks!

Julie Gardner, Manager
Conrad Dunn, Music Director
