Concerto Audition Results

Thank you to everyone who auditioned today! What an inspiring morning. 

Thank you to Boyd Edwards, Jennie Evans and Valerie Neslen for taking on the role of adjudicator. We are forever grateful to you for making the difficult decisions today.

Thank you to all the accompanists! Orchestral reductions are stinkers and you are all amazing. 

We want you to know that the decision of the judges was difficult. They want me to pass on to you that they were truly inspired by your performances, all the hard work and dedication that goes into this, and that everyone had truly sublime moments today. 

Whether or not you are on the final list, you are all invited to perform a piece of your choice on our Recital Night, January 14, 2017, 6:30 pm at the Brigham City Tabernacle.

Here are the results:

November Concert:

February Concert:
Drew Burnett, Arutunian Trumpet Concerto

April Concert:
Hubert Kim, Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, piano

Congratulations! 

Warmly,

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

See you soon!

Party Dates, Take 2

Please respond ASAP. I'm conflicted here because I can see how many people can't come to each choice in the original survey. So, Scratch That! Let's try this instead. :)
If you have trouble viewing or submitting this form, you can fill it out in Google Forms.

Party Dates, Take 2

I know I already tried this, but I'm going to try again. I'm not seeing a clear "winner" from the previous survey. Fully half of respondents cannot come on every possible date. So, once school is out, let's see if a weekday works better, hopefully before people leave for camps and amazing trips. Hoping to get a clearer answer this time. Thanks for your patience with me! :)
* Required
    Mon, Jun 6
    Tues, Jun 7
    Weds, Jun 8
    Thurs, Jun 9
    Fri, Jun 10
    Sat, Jun 11

Dinner on Concert Day

Please go to our nifty spreadsheet and sign up to help! This is better than passing around a sign up sheet since it's more likely that parents will know what they'd like to bring, and what will be feasible that day for your family. 
  • Chamber Orchestra will be invited to eat beginning at 4:45 pm. They will join Youth Symphony on stage at 5:15 for their combined piece, after which they will rehearse on stage and Youth Symphony will eat.
  • Please enter your name in any yellow square to help out... And try to keep the lists even with each other.
  • Bring a serving utensil for your item, and bring it in a ready-to-use format (slice the tomatoes before you come)
  • Be sure to label all items with your name, and pick them up afterwards. 
  • Rolls and meat for the sandwiches will be provded. 
  • Thanks so much to Lisa Brasher for organizing, and for the moms who have already volunteered to help that day. 
  • More help is needed that day, so if you can, there is also a space to volunteer.
Thanks so much. 

Julie Gardner
Lisa Brasher
