LYS Saturday Report March 1st, 2008


Thanks for all your work and preparation for our concert. I have heard some fabulous comments and had great feedback. Any additional feedback or suggestions are welcome.

How did you feel about the lighting? I would love to do away with the spotlight and light the stage so we can see the conductor. That would be refreshing!

Anyone who has the article from the Standard Examiner, I would love a copy. Anyone in Tremonton, did the article appear in the Leader? If it did, could I have a copy of that too?

And ladies, thanks for making your legs Black!

There will be CD's and DVD's available for purchase. They will have goth the March 1 and the Abravanel Hall concerts on them. I will find out prices ASAP. Prepaid orders only, please. There is no deadline. Orders will be filled as they are received. I will give you more details Saturday or Monday.

Remember to email me if you will not be coming to a rehearsal or you will be leaving early. I take roll every week!

This Week: March 8th, 2008

The Youth Symphony Festival at Abravanel Hall is coming right up on Monday. If you lost your permission slip, or did not get one for some reason, there is one available for download on the website. Click here.

If you are interested in looking at the music inventory (this does not include the music in the cabinets we moved in December--it hasn't been inventoried yet, but it may become someone's Eagle project), there is also a download for that on the same page. I know Nathan S was asking about this. Click here.

Rehearsal will be normal time this Saturday, 8:00 a.m. for everyone.

Treats: Violas, Cellos, Bass! This will be James' last rehearsal, so let's make it good!

Last Week: March 1st, 2008

The food was terrific. Guess who was in charge? The 2nd Violins!  Aren't they amazing? Fruit, juice, and fun!

We polished our music, and had a great concert!
