Hello Parents and Musicians!
This is Julie Gardner, Managing Director. I can be reached at 435.723.8262 or GJulieKay@juno.com
if you have any questions. You can always access past LYS Saturday Reports by clicking "weekly rehearsal report" on the Lincoln Youth Symphony website: http://lincolnyouthsymphony.googlepages.com
Remember to email me if you will be missing a rehearsal, and please be choosy about what constitutes a "good reason to miss." For the most part, everyone has been fantastic about letting me know!
Last Saturday, I talked to everyone about adding this rehearsal on November 28th. We still haven't officially decided on this yet. Why? Because I need commitments from you. If you've already emailed me, I've made a note, but for the rest of you, II need to know, one way or the other, whether you can be there or not.
We don't want to waste anyone's time with a poorly attended rehearsal, and we want it to be worth everyone's effort.
The proposed time is 5:45 to 7:30 pm on Wednesday, November 28th, the week after Thanksgiving.
Please reply asap to this email and let me know either way.
Rehearsal will be at ACYI; everyone (including winds) needs to be there at 8:00 am.
Amy Braithwaite will be coming between 9:45 and 10:00 to take our picture for the paper.
Treats: Second Violins. I think they even planned for someone to bring napkins... Now if I could just remember to bring a broom!
Don't forget, we are still looking for a bassoon or two and a couple more horns. Keep talking to your friends!
Our "Autumn Concert" (Don't laugh) is December 1, call time (that's when you need to be there) 6:30 at BEHS. The concert starts at 7:00 pm.
We will sit in the audience and listen to LYCO play first, then reset the stage for LYS.
To defray the cost of renting the hall, we will be charging a nominal admission fee: $2 adults and $1 children age 2-11 or senior citizens. Thank you for your support in this matter.
This will be a fabulous concert showcasing motivated musicians in two exceptional orchestras. Invite your family and friends -- that auditorium is large, and we want to feel like we're playing for an audience!
