LYS Saturday & Abravanel Hall Report March 8th, 2008


Well, we have made it through yet another trip to Abravanel Hall. I hope you all enjoyed the experience of listening to the other orchestras. I'm sorry that I cut it so tight with Jana. She was a witness for the prosecution in a Mock Trial competition in Orem. It started 45 minutes late, and, as you may have noticed, we barely made it back to Salt Lake in time. She said the only reason she could even play was adrenaline!

I would also like to publicly thank Cindy Stocks and Irma Bennett for riding the bus and checking off the names and making sure we didn't leave anyone or lose anyone. There is no way we could have done this without them.  Thank you!

I also want you to know that I am honored to have been there with you. Thank you for your time and effort. Section leaders that willingly step up and take that leadership role are fabulous. Thanks to all who nailed their solos and made it a memorable day!

We also said goodbye to James (we will miss you!), but he is planning to come back and make a video of himself. Great idea, huh? Don't come on the 22nd of March, James. It's Spring Break and there's no rehearsal!

Oh, One Other Thing. Boy, do I feel sheepish!  Do you remember how I was looking for a missing music stand? Well.... my child who loaded them in the van and will remain nameless in this email, thought he loaded 6 stands, and I thought I counted 6 stands when we were at the dinner, but there were only ever five. He helped me so much that day, but he forgot how to count (and so did I for that matter)! So the missing stand has... been at my house the entire time!  Now you know why no one could find it! Just thought I'd clear up the mystery for you. Laugh if you want, or smirk and shake your head. I'm used to being the punch line of the joke. :)
