Subject: Last call for Gala tickets!
10 March 2017
I'm having a great time in Pittsburgh, and my daughter Jana's recital was amazing last night. I don't know how long the video will stay up, but the live stream video is still there, for when (not if) you want to watch it, or at least put it on in the background.(Huge hint: Flutists should watch this! and wait until you see the accompanist... He's from Armenia, like Arutunian!)
Tomorrow, Josie is me. Be super nice and helpful, please, just as you always are! (Attendance form is still the best way to let us know if you'll be late, leave early, or be absent.)No sectionals tomorrow. Full orchestra for the whole time, 8:30 to 11:00.Josie will be asking information from the cello players who are riding the bus for their instrument size and for their case type (hard or soft). So, be super helpful with that, please.
Bring ticket money.
Bring Silent Auction items. :)
Need more info? The website has all the past posts about this.
All seats on the bus are full (going down) plus there will be additional transportation - two seats in my car and 6 seats in Mrs Rockwood's car (she will meet the bus at Farr West). We also have several students getting on at Venture High, which will be a quick stop since it's so close to the freeway. Our bus chaperones are Valerie Neslen and Jenn Christensen, and they will have a list of cell numbers for those riding the bus. If you have issues Monday, or you aren't making it to where you need to be at the right time, call me! I won't be following the bus, but I'll be in touch will all the right people.
On the way back, the bus is pretty full, but there will not be a need for additional transport (other than for the cellos and basses, already arranged for both directions), which is good, because I have to stay for a meeting.
Lunch! You are all in charge of your own lunch. Water ONLY -- that's the only drink allowed! You may eat (carefully) in the bus, or (carefully) in the lobby of Abravanel Hall before the 1 pm start time.
Re-read the Abravanel Hall info sheet, please.
Please do let me know if you have any questions. If you have a question, it's likely others are asking the same thing.It may seem that I'm always out of town, but this is only the third rehearsal I've missed in about 10 years. :)

Hello, parents and members of the Northern Utah Youth Symphony and Chamber Orchestra!
As you know, the Gala Celebration is quickly approaching! The event will be on March 18, 2017, at the Brigham City Community Center, located at 24 N 300 W, Brigham City, UT 84302. Iron Gate Catering will once again be providing their delicious Tuscan Chicken.
The members of the symphony and orchestra are responsible for selling the gala tickets to those who might be interested - family, friends, teachers, and others with whom they associate. There are a maximum of 200 tickets available, and over one hundred tickets have yet to be sold. Tickets are $20 per plate. I accept cash or checks made out to Lake Bonneville Symphonic Society.
Because I need to tell Iron Gate Catering the number of people who will be attending the gala, the last day that I will accept ticket sales is this Saturday, March 11, 2017. I will be at Promontory School of Expeditionary Learning from 8:30-11:30 a.m. to help facilitate the ticket sales.
The Lake Bonneville Symphonic Society hopes you will support the Gala and help fund the Symphony, Chamber Orchestra, and Community Symphony programs.
Please contact me if you need a different arrangement for purchasing tickets. I would love to help you!

Congrats on a great concert! Thanks especially to all who stepped up and volunteered in my absence, specifically the Francis, Aedo, Suiter, Neslen and Hankins families, but really those are just the ones with specific assignments, so thanks to everyone!
Rehearsal time is back to "normal" this week ~ 8:30 to 11:00 am. Messiah Rehearsal immediately following until noon. The online calendar is up to date. I will not be at our March 11 rehearsal.
Please be sure to fill out the attendance form if you are going to be late, leave early, or be absent. It helps us in setting up to keep the gaps to a minimum. If you know you will be missing any time in the future, you can fill it out now, weeks early. The signature at the bottom of every email includes a link to this form.
We have the Gershwin! We are performing Rhapsody in Blue with Hubert Kim in April. I was totally surprised to see the music so early! It seems that the rental company it comes from operates differently from the one that sent previous rentals. This means we can start working earlier! Come ready to work this Saturday on new music as well as on parts of the Tchaikovsky.
At Abravanel Hall we will be performing Finlandia and Tchaikovsky.
Very Important: Permission slips are due this Saturday. Contribute to the enjoyment of my March 8-12 trip to Pittsburgh for my daughter's recital by following through with this easy task.Please check the appropriate boxes at the bottom of the permission slip; if you've already signed it, you're not quite done! Please note whether your musician will be riding the bus, and which stop s/he will meet the bus. If you are a Venture Student, you may add "Venture High" as a stop on the form because it's so close to the freeway. You may also meet the bus at one stop on the way down and ride back to a different stop on the way home.
The Gala Ticket sales continue. Please participate in this event. It's super fun and for a GREAT cause. :)
The week before the concert, we drew little papers with themes for each section of the orchestra to donate items for silent auction baskets for the Gala Celebration.We are also looking for additional donations from local businesses! The Utah Jazz donated two autographed photos just because I asked! We received them this week. But two photos of jumping Jazz players does not a silent auction make.I will have a box at rehearsal this week, and make sure there is box there in my absence next week, to collect items for the baskets.Here are the themes:Violin I ~ Chocolate LoversViolin II ~ Summer FunViola & Bass ~ CampingCello ~ Pamper Me (Salon)Woodwinds ~ Game NightBrass & Percussion ~ Kitchen
NUYCO Group 1 ~ Disney
NUYCO Group 2 ~ Sports
Silent Auction Collaboration Link ~ Here I have included a link to the Silent Auction Collaboration. It's a fully editable spreadsheet where you can share who you have talked to - or are planning to talk to - for silent auction donations. You should at least click the link and see where I've applied so far. :)
Here is a letter you can use to beg for donations. :) It includes an option to request a donation for an "auxiliary auction" to take place at our April 25 season finale concert (in case we have passed someone's deadline for donations by March 18).
