The End is Not Yet:
Thank you for your wonderful energy and time on Monday! What a fun experience!
We are getting close to the end of our season, and we want our Finale to go off with a bang! I know we are all hoping for Spring Break, but there are too many schools with too many different Spring Breaks to take one. Your Spring Break can be April 30 (after the concert)! :)
Thank you for handing in your music! Only a couple people (who have stopped coming) have not turned in their music, and they have been contacted. Can I tell you how happy I am when all the music comes home! Bravo, all of you!
We have exactly 6 Saturday rehearsals before our final concert, which is fewer than usual! We will be getting all new music this Saturday. Be sure to communicate well about attendance. Here is the link to my favorite way for you to tell me (although you are always welcome to text or email).
The hardest will be the Violin Concerto by Samuel Barber, performed by Megan Brasher. We will have the music for this Saturday; according to the tracking number, it will arrive tomorrow, so I will have it in the folders for you. Here is a link to a Youtube recording.
We will also be learning the Prometheus Overture by Beethoven, and one other piece, which might be a surprise for all of us. (haha)
Please keep in mind that we might add a half hour to some of our last few rehearsals, but you will be informed via email if we do. It probably will depend on how much private practice is happening.
