LYS Saturday Report -- March 21st, 2009

This is Julie Gardner, Managing Director of Lincoln Youth Symphony.  For previous emails (or to read this one in another location), see the Lincoln Youth Symphony Blog, our Weekly Rehearsal Report, here.
Happy Note:
We only had two people take Flying J packets. If you are interested in the great Flying J deals with this but your child didn't take a packet, please contact Naomi Miles at 435.723.7617. Since there is no rehearsal this Saturday, and all materials must be returned on April 4th, this will be the only way to make this work.

Please support this fundraiser if you shop at Flying J. It's a great deal, and it will earn money so we can purchase much-needed music! Thank you in advance for your support.
Rehearsal schedule for Saturday, April 4th: 
Normal with treats (thank you to KB and her mom who remembered last week).

We will begin our rehearsal at 8:30 a.m. Call time is 8:15 a.m. Thank you for being on time!

Keep practicing the following:
  • Intermission - 10 Minutes
  • Lord of the Dance
  • Dvorak Scherzo
Do not worry about practicing the Grieg "Hall of the Mountain King" - we are choosing something else to combine with LYCO on. That one was a bit too ambitious for them! We'll play it again another time. I'll be collecting it at the next rehearsal.
Last Week

Thanks to everyone for a great rehearsal. We worked hard and accomplished much - and even ate brownies! Now it's time to practice, listen to recordings (see earlier emails for Youtube links), and practice some more.

Calendar Reminders:
  • No Rehearsal Next Week: Saturday, March 28th; too many people on tour
  • Very Very Very Important Rehearsal: Saturday, April 4th, 8:00 to 11:00, Call time 7:45 am (note earlier time) Sectionals at the beginning - be on time
  • No Rehearsal for Spring Break: Saturday, April 11th (We May Add this rehearsal back in depending on how things go April 4th, so practice hard, not hardly)
  • Very Very Very Important Rehearsal: Saturday, April 18th, 8:00 to 11:00, Call time 7:45 am (note earlier time)
  • Extra Rehearsal: Thursday, April 23rd from 4-6 p.m. Call time 3:45 pm, ACYI

So here's hoping everyone's having a great time who went on tour, and we'll see you next week.

Just a reminder: 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. Thank you in advance for your courtesy! I try to make it very easy to provide notification, and I have been impressed with everyone's communication skills this year!  You are wonderful.
Please contact me with any questions: Julie Gardner, 435.723.8262, GJulieKay@gmail.com, or check out the calendar on the website here.
