***If you left the orchestra earlier in the year and have not turned in your folder, please turn it in asap!***
For Everyone Else:
We are still looking for a sponsor and an extra sponsor for the concert! Any ideas are very welcome.
And on to the important stuff:
Here we are, winding down at the end of the season; we have much yet to accomplish, so let's keep rolling!
1. Wear your NUYS TShirts this Saturday March 21. I am looking forward to taking random pictures, so humor me.
2. The rest of the year looks like this:
March 21March 28April 4April 11April 18
Dress Rehearsal April 23, 4 pm, BEHS
(Really Dressy, please: wear your concert attire to this -- there will be formal pictures)
Final Concert April 23, 7 pm, BEHS
3. The Shostakovich is finally HERE and we will be working hard on that as well as the rest of our music. You should have Schubert's Unfinished, Copland's Hoedown from Rodeo, and Elfman's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in your folders so far.
Check out this youtube video of the Shostakovich, Leonard Bernstein at the piano...
4. If you are missing rehearsal any particular day, please let ME know.
(Mr Dunn is nice, but if one person is the clearing house for such information, we can make wiser decisions.) For instance, if all the woodwinds are going to be gone one week but I only know about half of them, we can't plan around it.
Your email or text or phone call should look something like this:
Hello! I, Julie Gardner, can't be at rehearsal this week because my daughter is performing at Carnegie Hall and I want to be there, and there isn't anything I can do to avoid it.(This is a future wish, but is not yet true -- so I will be at rehearsal.)
So, there you go! The Gala went very well, and we raised over $3000. Thank you for your support! Suggestions for improvement are always welcome.
See Ya Saturday in your T-Shirt!
