LYS Saturday Report for April 3, 2010


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

Today's Rehearsal:

We made a discovery today... There are only 2 rehearsals left before our concert -- including the dress rehearsal. Eeek!

So, Practice, Practice, Practice! Woodshed - break it up in little pieces and work on small sections. Put in fingerings as needed. Use a metronome to increase your speed if needed.

Thank you (from the bottom of my heart) to all the folks who came to rehearsal this morning - I know it's a holiday weekend, and I know it's Weber District's Spring Break. Thank you for your dedication and commitment.

Next week is going to be interesting. There are many people taking the ACT next week, but it is imperative that we have enough people to make an orchestra! LYCO is coming next week to rehearse Swan Lake during the last 45 minutes, and, as we already discovered this morning, there are only 2 more rehearsals before our concert!

Upcoming schedule:

Saturday, April 10, 8:30 to 11:00am (LYCO will be attending 10:15 to 11:00 to practice Swan Lake with us)
Saturday, April 17, NO Rehearsal. (Box Elder spring break, no conductor - and no way into the building - unless someone has a place we can meet!)
Thursday, April 22, Rehearsal on stage at BEMS, arrive at 4:45. Rehearsal from 5-7 pm (first half hour with LYCO)
Friday, April 23, Final Concert at BEMS, 7pm
Tuesday, May 25, 7 pm, Utah Symphony All-Star Concert, Abravanel Hall (come see three of our musicians perform side-by-side with the Utah Symphony!)
