Greetings! We voted on a rehearsal time change! It was intense (well, as intense as it gets at Youth Symphony) and came right down to the wire, and we are grateful to the musician who came in and broke the tie (so I didn't have to!).
The Verdict: for the remainder of the year, we will be starting rehearsal at 8:30 and ending at 11:00. You need to arrive at least 10 minutes early so we can start on time, and if we start late, we will end late! We are also suspending "treats" for now, in an attempt to use our time more efficiently.
If you were not at rehearsal, be sure to scroll down. You're on the Music Recovery List, and I need you to be sure to bring your music this Saturday!
Remember: Our LYS Dress Rehearsal will be May 1, 4:45 to 6:15 at ACYI. Please add it to your calendar. We need everyone there!
Upcoming dates and changes to remember:
April 5, 12, 19, 26, Regular Rehearsals 8:30 - 11:00 a.m.
Dress Rehearsal Thursday May 1, 4:45 to 6:15, ACYI (Be sure to add this to your calendar)

Last Rehearsal March 29th:
Aside from voting on rehearsal times and eating grasshopper cookies (thanks, Rhiannon!), we traded in old music and checked out new music.
It is extremely important for my serenity that the following people bring their music this Saturday:
Andrea M, McKell C, Michelle J, Sonee K, Jonathon H, Sarah S, Madison S, Rachael G, Melissa G, Heley S, Linda H, Amylee W, and Shannon A.
Wow! Can you tell we had a lot of conflicts last Saturday?
I will check out new music only to people who trade in the old music.
You will keep Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Bach's Fugue in G Minor, and return Bacchanale, Hungarian Dance, Tchaikovsky's 4th, and some will also need to turn in Marcello and Mozart. Let's make it all run smoothly.
I really hate filing music when it comes in late! It ruins my serenity... (hint hint)
