LYS Saturday Report March 22nd, 2008


I hope you all had a great Spring Break!

Rehearsal this Saturday. We will be voting on a possible time change (I'd like to experiment before the end of the year. 8:30 to 11:00 or 9:00 to 11:30, but if you're late we keep you extra...). We will also be checking out new music. Remember to let me know if you will not be there or will be leaving early.

Breaking news: Our Dress Rehearsal will be May 1, 4:45 to 6:15 at ACYI. Please add it to your calendar. We need everyone there!

We also did a bunch of sight-reading. We made some fun, and sometimes rather interesting, music.
