Hello Parents and Musicians!
This is Julie Gardner, Managing Director. If you have any questions, I can be reached at 435.723.8262 or GJulieKay@juno.com. You can always access past LYS Saturday Reports by clicking "weekly rehearsal report" on the Lincoln Youth Symphony website: http://LincolnYouthSymphony.googlepages.com
Remember to email me about attendance. This means a missed rehearsal, or if you will be leaving early or coming late, and please be choosy about what constitutes a "good reason to miss."
For the most part, everyone has been fantastic about letting me know! Commitment makes this orchestra thrive! Block out Saturdays for the year. Tell people you are busy.
We have two more rehearsals in December, and we miss
Fantastic Concert Last Saturday
Belated congratulations to all of you! We sounded great, and I had some wonderful comments. I would have emailed sooner but I spent Sunday sick in bed. Throwing up for 7 hours is never fun, but I'm glad it didn't happen on Saturday, although I'm sure everything would have still worked without me. I've been recovering all week, and playing in the Messiah. :)
You were great about turning in your music, as well. The only missing music as of today belongs to Rhiannon J (violin 1), Nathan J (viola), Rachel A (cello), Hannah F (cello), and Cameron C (low brass). Please Please Please turn in your music TOMORROW so I don't have to get mean! I've already filed it, and it's a royal pain to file music that wasn't turned in with the rest. If you turned in music but not your manilla folder, you got credit for turning in your music, but please turn in the folder as well. And, for the vast majority of you, THANK YOU for turning in your music! Bravo!
One extra note: Nick H (violin 1) left some personal music in his folder. He won't be at rehearsals for the next concert, so if someone sees Nick at school or lives near him, please let me know. I can give you his music!
Don't forget, we are still trying to fill seats in the winds and brass section. Let's expand our ability to play by filling all our seats!
