Upcoming Peach Days Concert

This is Julie Gardner, Managing Director of Lincoln Youth Symphony. If you are receiving this email, you either are or have been associated with the Lincoln Youth Symphony, and we invite you to come play for Brigham City's Peach Days Festival. We know some of you have graduated and are moving on to bigger and better things soon, and we hope you will pass this information on, and encourage your talented friends to come participate. This is a no-audition, no-stress fun concert. Gear up for the new season!  Come Play for Peach Days!
This year, LYS will be combining with the Community Orchestra - with our LYS conductor (John Findlay) and their LBCS rehearsal time (Tues and Thurs evenings).
The music will be fun! We will be playing most or all of the following pieces:
Hay-Up Hoe-down
Theme from Close Encounters
The Waltzing Cat
Chariots of Fire
American Patrol
Star Dust
I can't wait to see you all again! Please RSVP. I need to know if you are planning to play! Call Julie Gardner 435.723.8262 or email me at GJulieKay@gmail.com.
Rehearsal Dates: August 19, 21, 26, 28, and Dress Rehearsal September 2.
Rehearsal Time: 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Rehearsal Location: Adele C Young Intermediate School, 830 S Law Drive, Brigham City
Please Note: There will not be a rehearsal Thursday Sept 4 due to school & Peach Days scheduling conflicts, but we are confident that with good attendance at all 5 rehearsals and just a little practicing at home, we will be prepared for a superb performance on Sept 6.
Concert Date and Time: Saturday, Sept 6, 2:00 p.m.
Parade - Opinions and Volunteers Needed!
The Lake Bonneville Symphonic Society is planning to enter the Peach Days parade to spread the word about the Lincoln Youth Symphony, Lincoln Youth Chamber Orchestra, and Lake Bonneville Community Symphony. We need some participation: Either people willing to ride in the back of a truck and play music, or wave, throw candy, or hand out leaflets for the concert... We are not sure if we will perform live music for the parade and We need your feedback in our decision!
Auditions for 2008-2009 Season!
Auditions are scheduled for 8:30 to 11:00 am September 13, 2008 at Adele C Young Intermediate School 830 S Law Drive, Brigham City. All new and returning musicians must audition. Please refer to this link and scroll down for information on what to prepare for auditions: Audition Page.
Regular Saturday rehearsals from 8:30 to 11:00 am will begin the following week, Saturday, September 20.
