Promontory School of Expeditionary Learning at 1001 West 2700 South, Perry, has offered us rehearsal space in trade for using our music stands and percussion equipment. We are so pleased as this will free up funds for regular LYS section specialists!
There is currently an Eagle project going on to fix up our music stands so they can be used at the new school. The ribbon cutting is coming up August 11th!
Thank you, PSEL! This is the beginning of a fabulous partnership.
Concerts will still be at Box Elder Middle School Auditorium, 18 South 500 East, Brigham City.
This year's regular Saturday rehearsals will begin at 8:30 am and end at 11:00 am. This is a time adjustment from last year, and will hopefully accommodate more people's Saturday plans.
Sam, our new conductor, has requested this change to better serve you! So, bleary-eyed or not, we are starting at 8:30! :)
There are several dates to remember in regards to Concerto Auditions & Performance Opportunities:
September 29, 2012: Music Approval Deadline -- please submit to Julie Gardner by this date. The music you want to perform must be available and playable, and we can't know if you don't ask!
November 3, 2012: 11:15am @ Promontory School: Concerto Auditions
If you are selected to perform with the Lincoln Youth Symphony, you may be included in either of two concerts, depending on how the programming works out:
February 9, 2013 or April 20, 2013
What a great year it's going to be!
Because of our change of venue, we cannot move into the new school until after August 15. This leaves very little time for rehearsal -- so there will be no LYS/LYCO/LBCS participation in Peach Days this year. Perhaps we'll play at Peach Days next year!
Thanks to everyone for their support & interest. We are sorry it didn't work out!
