Bring a Friend!
Do you have friends who play an orchestral instrument? This is the time to bring them!! No commitment, just a chance to come play some great music and have treats.Of course, if they want to join, they are welcome to pursue that as well after the break on January 5th. :)Click here for the event page on Facebook!**If you are willing to help with treats, please contact me.

- To all who participated in the concerto auditions last week (some were from our orchestra, some were not), thank you for an incredibly inspiring afternoon! I absolutely loved being part of that, and the only part I didn't like was having to choose a few to play for the concerts in February and April. That part was hard! Thanks to Sam & Doris for being on the panel. There will be more information on this as time goes on (especially since we will be rehearsing for this after Thanksgiving). So, those selected to perform are ... drum roll please ... Jennifer Ban (Piano, Beethoven); Paisley Tarboton (Violin, Bruch); Taylor Robbins (Cello, Haydn); Nathan Brown (Violin, Chen Gang and He Zhanhao); and alternate Krystal Matheson (Trumpet, Hummel). Again, I wish we could have chosen everyone, and I hope we will have a great experience accompanying these wonderful musicians on their solos. For those who weren't chosen, come back and audition again!
- Thank you to all who came to the retreat, to all who drove, to our chaperones, and to everyone who put up with the food. It wasn't great, but it was food, and we are thinking about doing something better & less expensive next year for food and even have a volunteer to head up the effort... Isn't Camp Utaba great? :)
It's coming time for a check-in as we wind down to our first concert next week, November 17, 5pm, Box Elder Middle School Auditorium, $3/$2/$12. I have posted the press release with all the important information on the website. Be sure to share it with family and friends. Let's fill up the audience!Press Release: http://www.lincolnyouthsymphony.com/2012/11/press-release-lincoln-youth-symphony.html ...I also created an event on Facebook. Share it around, okay? Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/events/110102512485344/Event on the community calendar "Now Playing Utah":http://www.nowplayingutah.com/event/detail/441696627/Lincoln_Youth_Symphony_and_Lincoln_Youth_Chamber_Orchestra_Concert
So, tomorrow's rehearsal (November 10, 2012) is a normal rehearsal with wind & brass sectionals. It's at Promontory School, as usual, from 8:30 to 11:00 am. It's also our last rehearsal before Concert Day, so be there & be prepared!
Next Week's Rehearsal
Next week's rehearsal (November 17, 2012) will be at the regular time (8:30 to 11:00 am) but it will be on the stage at Box Elder Middle School Auditorium, 18 South 500 East, Brigham City.
Group Photo: Big Announcement
We will be taking a group picture at the end of our rehearsal before the LYCO rehearsal ... WEAR your CONCERT ATTIRE for the rehearsal! This is a change from previous years. A CHANGE! Yes, dress up for the rehearsal. You don't have to button the top of your manly dress shirts or put on your ties until it's time for the photo, but please wear your black slacks, black socks, black shoes, black suit jacket, black bowtie, and white dress shirt for the photo. But not if you're a girl. Girls don't have to wear that stuff. They wear all black: black shoes, black nylons/tights/trouser socks, black blouses (or black dresses)... You know what I mean, right? Dressy & black with sleeves and black legs. Pictures. With instruments. Fun. Yeah. I'm Excited!
The concert that evening is at 5pm. Call time is 4:30. Concert order: Mt Olympus Waters Honors Quartet from the University of Utah Graduate School (including Sam Runolfson, cello); LYCO; LYS. We expect to be finished by 6:30pm at the latest. We know some people have pits or other concerts to head for! :) Check the press release or Facebook event or Now Playing Utah link for admission information. YES... We all contribute to the rental of the auditorium by paying a small admission fee. Let's find a few sponsors so we don't have to pay! Anyone want to head up the effort for the next concert? :)

1. Be sure you pick up an acceptance and payment form next week if you didn't get one this week.2. Careful with the music: You are responsible to keep the music flat and in good condition. If the folder I gave you is too big for you, you may choose to alter the folder size or even use a different one, but if you have any over-sized music in your folder, then a smaller sized folder may not protect the music. Please be aware of the music!3. Rehearsal next week is regular time: 8:30 to 11:00 am. We will hear any new members audition after rehearsal or during break. Bring pencils for marking music!4. If you are taking the ACT Oct 27, please hit reply and let me know RIGHT NOW. This is a potential problem because our retreat is that weekend.

Promontory School of Expeditionary Learning at 1001 West 2700 South, Perry, has offered us rehearsal space in trade for using our music stands and percussion equipment. We are so pleased as this will free up funds for regular LYS section specialists!
There is currently an Eagle project going on to fix up our music stands so they can be used at the new school. The ribbon cutting is coming up August 11th!
Thank you, PSEL! This is the beginning of a fabulous partnership.
Concerts will still be at Box Elder Middle School Auditorium, 18 South 500 East, Brigham City.
This year's regular Saturday rehearsals will begin at 8:30 am and end at 11:00 am. This is a time adjustment from last year, and will hopefully accommodate more people's Saturday plans.
Sam, our new conductor, has requested this change to better serve you! So, bleary-eyed or not, we are starting at 8:30! :)
There are several dates to remember in regards to Concerto Auditions & Performance Opportunities:
September 29, 2012: Music Approval Deadline -- please submit to Julie Gardner by this date. The music you want to perform must be available and playable, and we can't know if you don't ask!
November 3, 2012: 11:15am @ Promontory School: Concerto Auditions
If you are selected to perform with the Lincoln Youth Symphony, you may be included in either of two concerts, depending on how the programming works out:
February 9, 2013 or April 20, 2013
What a great year it's going to be!
Because of our change of venue, we cannot move into the new school until after August 15. This leaves very little time for rehearsal -- so there will be no LYS/LYCO/LBCS participation in Peach Days this year. Perhaps we'll play at Peach Days next year!
Thanks to everyone for their support & interest. We are sorry it didn't work out!

The May 15, 2012, Utah Symphony All-Star Concert was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for several local youth nominated through the Lincoln Youth Symphony. A big congratulations to recently graduated students Brittney Rutherford, Viola, Box Elder High School; Tami Hunter, Clarinet, Box Elder High School; and Kjersti Matheson, French Horn, Weber High School. It was a fantastic concert, and an exciting time for audience members watching the packed stage as they performed side-by-side with the Utah Symphony.
Only youth symphonies (including Brigham City's Lincoln Youth Symphony) that participate in the annual Youth Symphony Festival at Abravanel Hall are eligible to nominate musicians for the annual Utah Symphony All-Star Concert.
