LYS Saturday Report -- November 15th, 2008 -- and rehearsal location change

Important information: We announced last week that our dress rehearsal would be at the High School Auditorium, but due to the exorbitant additional cost of doing that, we have moved the regular morning rehearsal back to the band room at ACYI. Sorry to be confusing!
Additional Important Information: The concert will be Saturday, November 22, 2008, at 7:00 pm at the High School Auditorium at 400 S and 600 W in Brigham City. The concert will be in the Box Elder High School Auditorium. Call time (that means arrival time) for the concert is 5:45 pm. We will be starting each of our pieces at 6:00 SHARP on the stage. We will exit the stage at 6:15 so LYCO can do the same. It's an abbreviated dress rehearsal. Please arrange your schedules so you can be warmed up and ready at the correct time. If we start earlier than 6:00 you will each receive a gold star on your forehead! Audience will be admitted to the auditorium after sound checks end, between 6:30 and 6:45.Please arrange your schedules so you can be warmed up and ready at the correct time.
This is Julie Gardner, Managing Director of Lincoln Youth Symphony.  If you need to read a previous email, they are all available on the Lincoln Youth Symphony Blog, the Weekly Rehearsal Report, here.
Remember, regular Saturday rehearsals are from 8:30 to 11:00 am. Thank you for being on time!  This means call time is 8:20 and you should arrive 5-10 minutes early to set up and be ready for downbeat at 8:30. Mr. Findlay had treats for everyone who was on time today!
If you will not be attending a rehearsal, or will be leaving early or coming late, please contact me at 435.723.8262 or reply to this email. It is really disconcerting when someone doesn't come without letting us know. Thank you for your courtesy! I try to make it very easy to notify me.

We were missing some key wind & brass players, but the percussion section is coming together, I think. Thank you to Brian and Eli for helping out! 
Remember, we have a fun recruiting video on LincolnYouthSymphony.googlepages.com.
Future Rehearsals & Other Miscellaneous but Important Information
We are in the compiling stage for sending letters to prospective contributors to our silent auction. Please consider helping with this effort.
The concert, as stated above, will be this Saturday, November 22nd, 2008, 7:00 pm, BEHS Auditorium. Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children under 11. It defrays the cost of the hall, and any money left over will go towards new music. We will turn in music that night after we play.
We will be moving percussion equipment to the high school after the regular Saturday morning rehearsal. I had one person volunteer on the audition form to help haul percussion. If you are interested in helping with this, please respond to this email or give me a call. We could really use one more vehicle!
No rehearsal Thanksgiving weekend. We will resume rehearsals the following week, December 6th, 8:30 to 11:00 am, call time 8:20 am.
Auditions will be December 6th after regular rehearsal for concerto night (Feb 28)!   If you are interested in doing this, please contact me as soon as possible.
Please contact me with any questions: Julie Gardner, 435.723.8262, GJulieKay@gmail.com, or check out the calendar on the website here (please inform me of any technical difficulties).
