For those of you who are new, I send a weekly email. Generally it arrives much earlier in the week!
Regular Rehearsal, 9-11:15. Please arrive early and help set up. Thanks a TON for everyone who helped set up last week. Rob is looking forward to being at rehearsal tomorrow! It sounds like he had a great week in Boulder at his conducting workshop.
Tomorrow is a great rehearsal to bring friends (especially if they play a missing instrument!). They are welcome to play along, and then decide if they want to join us for the year.
Thanks to everyone for their efforts last week. It was a good rehearsal, and I appreciated Rob even more by the time I was done conducting!
Discount for Late-Comers
Thanks to everyone who joined us for the parent meeting last Saturday. With regard to the discount, our new policy for everyone who joins after the parent meeting: If you take care of your tuition within one week of joining (this includes payment in full or making arrangements), you will qualify for the discount. So your friends can join late and still qualify for the discount.
If you haven't filled out and turned in a calendar sheet with your conflicts on it, please bring it tomorrow. If you turned one in at the parent meeting, you are covered!
Upcoming November 18-19 Retreat FAQ
If going on an overnight activity is not my thing, can I skip the retreat?
You are welcome to not spend the night, but the retreat is taking the place of rehearsals for that weekend, so it is imperative that you participate in the daytime part of the retreat - there will be rehearsals on Friday evening as well as a workshop/sectional on Saturday morning and another rehearsal on Saturday as well. It is our first rehearsal after our concert, so we will be learning new music and it's going to be fun! Please make arrangements to be there for the Friday evening and Saturday morning/early afternoon activities even if you do not plan to spend the night.
How do we get there?
Camp UTABA is relatively close-by (for a camp location). Here is a link to their map http://camputaba.org/drive.htm. Carpooling is recommended. If you need tips on people to carpool with, please contact me.
I might have a swim meet or something that weekend. Can I come to part of the retreat?
YES! Please come to as much of the retreat as possible, but if you have an unavoidable conflict, we will work with you! :)
