No, you did not miss my email last week. I just didn't send one. Sorry to have been so busy!

Our 8:30 rehearsal experiment is not working very well. This week, April 26th, rehearsal will start at 8:15. Be on time and on task...!  Fabulous.

The last few weeks we have learned that we do not like having the metronome hooked through the sound system (it's very loud... made my face twitch), and we have learned how we truly sound from the digital recording system John brought to rehearsal (well, we certainly improved between the first and second recordings, right?). We have much still to perfect, and can only do it with everyone there. Thanks to everyone who makes LYS a Saturday Morning priority!

Remember: Our LYS Dress Rehearsal will be May 1, 4:45 to 6:15 at ACYI. Fifth Grade Orchestra goes until 4:30, so be there waiting when they finish.

Music Inventory Project:
Adults, Students, Friends, Trustworthy Fellow Citizens Needed
Josh has been getting prepared to blitz the unknown music in the Golden Spike Cabinets as his Eagle Project. There are 8 computers networked in our garage, and the program he has created will support anyone with a web browser. The work party begins at Noon on Saturday April 26th, and the address is 2800 South 1200 West, Perry, UT 84302. Please RSVP so he knows how many helpers to expect: MellowCelloFellow@gmail.com ... Here's hoping everyone who's not involved in State Solo & Ensemble that day will be able to come help out and get to know each other better!

The end of the season is fast approaching:

April 26, Regular Rehearsal 8:30 - 11:00 a.m.

Dress Rehearsal Thursday May 1, 4:45 to 6:15, ACYI (Be sure to add this to your calendar)

Friday, May 2, Final Concert with LYCO, at BEHS 400 S & 600 W, 7:00 p.m. Call time 6:30.  Admission defrays the cost of the hall: $2 12 and up, $1 Seniors & Children.

Tuesday May 13, Utah Symphony All-Star Concert. Come to Salt Lake City and see Rachel A, Rachael G, Rhiannon J, Candace C, and Tori H play side-by-side with the Utah Symphony at Abravanel Hall... It could be you next year!

It is still extremely important for my serenity that the following people bring their music this Saturday:

Andrea M (we still miss you), Linda H (who will be back this Saturday)

I also still need music from Tim B (violin I) so if you see him... you know what to do! :)

Well, the list is so much shorter... That's wonderful!
