LYS Saturday Report for November 6, 2010

Please read this! I need strings to come early next week. I did not announce this at rehearsal! See highlighted sections below for full info! AND: Please reply to this email to acknowledge that you received it!
Oh, this is Julie Gardner, 435.723.8262, 
Please contact me with any questions, or, as usual, with attendance issues.

Today's Rehearsal:
A Huge Thank You to Amy Elmer and Cami Dilg for assisting in our rehearsal this morning. Along with Nada & Sarah Pehrson and me, we were able to split up for sectionals. Thank you, Thank you! You are all awesome. We were missing a few people, some I had heard from, some I hadn't! We hope you all come back next week! :)

Next Week, November 13th:
I meant to announce this at the end of rehearsal this morning, but I lost track of time and we ended rather abruptly: I need to have all Strings ready to rehearse next week on the 13th at 8:30am! Yes, that means everyone that plays violin, viola, cello, or bass! We have a lot to accomplish, and I feel strongly that the strings need to meet a half-hour early. So, next week, please be ready to play by 8:30. This means arrival time: 8:20! 

I will be there by 8:10 to set up. Big smiles and giggles for anyone who comes early enough to help out!

Winds & Brass, please arrive by 8:50am, come quietly into the band room & set up your stuff, then warm up in the orchestra room so you are ready to rehearse by 9:00am! This will facilitate the best use of our time. 

Does it sound like I'm a little worried about the upcoming concert? Well... I'm not worried, but I do think we need a longer rehearsal next week, so I'm asking for one!  Thanks!

Remember, the Nov 20th concert is at 5pm. Please plan to be there by 4:30pm.
