Saturday Report: November 3rd, 2007

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.

Be sure you read about the Dress Rehearsal below. I need your response!

Next Saturday

Rehearsal will be back at ACYI; everyone (including winds) needs to be there at 8:00 am.

Treats: First Violins. They were planning food assignments last Saturday so this should be really fun!

Last Saturday
Thanks for working with us on the location. Everyone did a great job of showing up at the High School. John, James & I brought treats. It ended up being assorted crackers and pretzels. I'm sure the first violins will do better than that this week!
We had a split rehearsal for the first hour, then had the Winds join the Strings in the Band Room. It was a good rehearsal.
Keep practicing! It's time to turn this stuff into music, and it's getting really close!

Welcome New Musicians: Ryan Anderson on Trumpet, and Cameron Clark on Tuba. Fabulous to have you!

We are still looking for a bassoon or two and a couple more horns. Keep talking to your friends!

Honor Band

Congratulations! Keri Hunter, Tori Hunter, and Hope McConkie will be in the Tri-State Honor Band on Nov 30-Dec 1 in Logan. And the concert is in the afternoon, so they'll still be with us for our evening concert that day!

Upcoming Concert

Our "Autumn Concert" is December 1, call time 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.

Dress Rehearsal

We would like to schedule the dress rehearsal for 5:45 to 7:30 on November 28th. It's a Wednesday, the week after Thanksgiving. We need to know exactly who can be there and who cannot. We must be out of the building by 7:30 pm.

Please reply to this email and let me know either way. We need to have a good idea of whether it's worth setting the rehearsal for that day. It's very important -- we don't want to waste anyone's time!

The Lake Bonneville Community Symphony has begun rehearsing for the Messiah sing-in. The performance will be December 6th in the Box Elder Tabernacle. They have invited anyone in LYS who wants to play in the Messiah to come join them! The schedule can be found at http://www.geocities.com/lakebonnsymph/.

I passed out the green flyers for grocery fundraisers at the rehearsal Nov 3rd. Please participate in this program. It is a painless way to raise money for the youth symphony. More information at http://lincolnyouthsymphony.googlepages.com. Click on "Fundraising" on the left sidebar.
