LYS Music, Schedule, etc


Thank you to everyone who braved the weather and made it to Saturday's rehearsal! Bravo. I hope all made it home safely. It's been quite a weekend, weather-wise!

Thank you to all who performed in the Nov 23 concert. You all did a great job, and everyone who played turned in their music (which made me really really happy). If you didn't play in the concert and haven't turned in your music, please do so. My least favorite job is hunting down music!!!!

New Music:

We have collected the Frescobaldi and the Respighi, and in addition to keeping the Egmont Overture and Bounty Hunter (which we may play at Abravanel Hall on March 3), we have handed out the following for the February 1 Concerto Concert: 
    • Hummel's Trumpet Concerto (3rd Movement)
      to be performed by our own Krystal Matheson
    • Vivaldi's Violin Concerto in A Minor (3rd Movement)
      to be performed by LYCO's Kristene Murrow
    • Mozart's Piano Concerto no 23 (3rd Movement)
      to be performed by David Ban
    • Hardiman's Lord of the Dance
    • Schubert's Rosamunde Overture
and next week we will hand out one other piece, Themes from Also Sprach Zarathustra, which we sightread this week and the brass players were pretty excited about.

We have one other concerto on order; it's for the April concert but the music is quite difficult, so we will need to start working on it asap. It is 
    • MacDowell's Piano Concerto no. 2 (1st movement) to be performed by Joshua Musselman (some of you may remember him -- he performed the Liszt Piano Concerto with us two years ago). 

We will have one other regular rehearsal this year -- December 14, 8:30 to 11:00 am at Promontory, and then we have a couple weeks off for the holidays. We will resume January 4, and rehearse every week until our next concert, which is coming right up on February 1. 

Please let us know when you won't be at rehearsal (and why). The easiest way to do this is by replying to this email, or sending a text to Julie at 435 740 4335.

Information will be available soon regarding the upcoming Gala Fundraiser Dinner and Silent Auction scheduled for March 15.
