LYS Saturday Report for February 20, 2010


As always, this is Julie Gardner, 435.723.8262, GJulieKay@gmail.com. Please contact me with any questions, or, as usual, with attendance issues.

Great rehearsal this morning!

Today we realized that we are one rehearsal away from Abravanel Hall. 

This will be an exciting concert! It is the first time we will have performed an entire symphony. Haydn Rocks! :) 

Be sure to practice your trouble spots this week...

Also, welcome to Jessica R; how cool was that to have 2 bassoons today, eh?

Next Week: Feb 27, Be There at 8:00am. Rehearsal will begin at 8:10am. Let's surprise ourselves and be on time! :)

Upcoming trip to Abravanel Hall - March 1 - One week from this MONDAY.

I handed out information & permission slips today. Just follow this link for the page with these information/permission slips or go to LincolnYouthSymphony.blogspot.com and click on "files & forms" on the right hand side. We will be adding an additional stop at the park and ride next to the Saturn dealership off Riverdale Road, so if that is where you want to catch the bus, please add that to the permission slip you will be turning in NEXT SATURDAY. For a map of where the bus will be going including the additional stop, click here and prepare to be impressed with my google map abilities!  Yes, that's right!  Bring those permission slips next Saturday. I will bring homemade bread to rehearsal. Everyone who brings his/her permission slip will get a slice. Shall I bring butter too? 

(Can someone email me Friday and remind me? Avery?)

One other detail about Abravanel: You are welcome to invite your grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, etc. to come watch - LYS will be putting small cases on row 2, and sitting on row 3, so tell your family to some sit on row 3. Tell them to only exit and enter the auditorium between numbers, and to keep in mind that the recording device is on row 1! 

No tickets required... Great chance to experience Abravanel Hall for free! :)

Gala Fundraiser Dinner is coming up on March 19th. 

I had one student tell me that she had for sure sold 4 tickets and possibly 4 more.  Great job! I will be ready this coming Saturday with tickets to exchange for money!  We must have a final Catering count well before the dinner (I don't know the official cutoff, but it could be as early as March 6th) so let's get the money turned in asap!

And, PS, don't forget your permission slip this Saturday. I know you will want some homemade bread! :)
