Greetings! Welcome to 2020!
If you have friends, especially those who play violin or viola, we'd love to have them come play along at our rehearsal this Saturday. Reply to this email and let me know if this might be happening so we don't have too many surprises! Friends are also welcome to stay for the party!

A note about repertoire:
The concert on February 22nd will be Jupiter, Mars, The Lark Ascending, and one other piece (Rebecca's concerto - a rental piece arriving in January). We have Lark Ascending additional parts (if you didn't get one - Bassoons, Basses, maybe others) to hand out tomorrow.
Baal-Shem (Rebecca Hale's piece) is in the mail. I received shipping notice today. We will be handing it out next week. (Narnia too. See below.)
We will also be handing out Narnia in January to add to our program for Abravanel Hall, March 2nd, so we will play Mars, Jupiter and Narnia for that performance.
