Merry Christmas!

Parties are Great!
Thanks to everyone for a great rehearsal and fun party last Saturday! Thanks to the parent volunteers and Doris for the lovely food presentation. You are all wonderful!

Enjoy Your Holiday!
This seemingly long email started out as a quick reminder that there is no rehearsal this week or next: December 22 or 29. Our next rehearsal is January 5th. (Please read the whole email, though!)

Also, welcome to the email list to all our new players and parents! :)

Listening and practice
Watch and Listen to The Lark Asxending by Vaughan Williams (the rental music is being shipped right now and will be ready for you at the next rehearsal - our soloist will be Mr Dunn)
Listen to the Quantz Flute Concerto (for solo flute (Allison Cook) and strings - we are doing the first movement)
Watch and Listen to the Movie Spectacular - this is a fun video made in Puerto Rico!
And practice. Enjoy your holiday by practicing! You'll feel like a million bucks on January 5th if you've practiced! If you want to share fingerings or tips with your section, send them to me... I can send things out for you. :)

Timely Feedback Needed
We have not officially set a time yet for the Logan High concert. We would like it to be an evening concert, but we can be flexible if there are major conflicts. Please check your schedules TODAY and let me know ASAP if you have any situations we need to be aware of. This is for Saturday, February 23rd, 2019. Last year we somehow scheduled our February concert at the same time as several students' prom! So please check and get back with me!

Thank you!

Recital Night
If you are wanting to perform at Recital Night on January 12th, be sure to contact me. 

I'm a little worried I've left someone off the list, so I'm including my current list below. If you told me you wanted to perform and you're not on the list, I've messed up! Please contact me if I forgot you, or if you want to be added. It's going to be a lovely evening!
