NUYS Followup... And a Request!


You are all wonderful! How I wish things hadn't ended the way they did for the 2019-2020 season! Going through folders made me sad!

My Request to You:
Could you record yourself, video or audio, for a few seconds or a few minutes, talking about who you are, what you play, and why you love the youth symphony, why you give up sleeping in on Saturday mornings for Classical Music, about the friends you've made, or the great music we've played! Whatever you would say to convince your friends to join!

End your recording with "Come Play With Us!" if you like. ... Then, just send it in to me! I will use clips to make a recruiting video! So Fun!

Photos & Certificates:
If you ordered a photo at Abravanel Hall, you should have received it in the mail by now. 

If you are graduating this year, you should have also received a certificate. 

Please please let me know if you should have received either a picture or certificate and did not! My greatest anxiety is that I'll miss honoring someone!

If we had been able to perform our concert on April 23, we would have had 25 students lined up across the stage, bidding them farewell as they graduate from High School. We will deeply miss you all!

Adult Volunteers Play for Free: 
If you are a graduate and you are still around and would like to play with us, come back as an adult volunteer!

Music Roundup needs to be complete this week:
I drove the long loop Saturday and collected all music folders that had been turned in. I came home and sorted folders, then went through both spreadsheets and checked in everyone's music. THANK YOU to everyone who turned in their folders last week! 

There are still 18 folders missing from NUYS and 14 missing from NUYCO. 

The Music Roundup will continue for this week, but only at Promontory School 9am to 2 pm, and at my house, 2800 S 1200 W, Perry, anytime. 

I will work through the spreadsheet and send personal emails and text messages to all students who have not turned in a folder according to my records, but you probably know if you still have your folder. You have until the end of this week! Thanks ahead of time for your cooperation. 

Concerto Auditions:
If you are working on a concerto and plan to audition, I need to know about your intentions asap! Thank You! :)

God bless! Be well! Here's to the possibility of NORMAL!

PS A Bit of History: Here is a link to our OLD OLD OLD recruiting video. The last one we made. It's rather funny, actually! And really OLD! I promise with your help, I'll make a better one!
