Notice the ad I put up on the website for the sponsor for this concert. Classical Strings is making it possible for free admission to the concert!


We do not have an official recording arranged for this concert. If you are making a recording, please let me know if you are willing to share. A decent digital video camera actually makes a very nice sound recording!


Let's fill the auditorium! Invite friends and family. Also, please let your guests know that there are people recording the concert, so concert etiquette is appreciated.


You do not need to dress up for the dress rehearsal; it's just "dress" because it's on the stage. Concert dress for the evening is as follows:

Male: Black tux or equivalent suit, white dress shirt, black bow tie, black socks, black shoes.

Female: Black dress, formal trouser suit, or blouse & skirt, midriff covered, conservative neckline, skirts & dresses at least tea-length, slits no higher than knee, black stockings, black shoes, accessories & trim in black.

Music Folders:

Please be prepared to turn in your music after the concert in the folder I gave you. If you are not using it on the stand during the concert, you can even hand it to me before the concert. I get really excited when everyone hands in their music at once. It just makes my day!  I will fill your folder with new music during the holiday.

Next Rehearsal:

We will be taking Thanksgiving weekend off, and starting rehearsals again December 7th, at Promontory School, 8:30-11:00am.
