Rehearsal! - NUYCO

Hello families! What a wonderful concert on Friday. I had so many people tell me how incredible and "top-level" NUYCO sounded. I remember going to NUYCO and NUYS concerts when my brother was in the symphony and I don't think NUYCO ever sounded like they do now. Quite an accomplishment! 

Just a reminder that we do have rehearsal on Saturday! 9:30-11:00 AM at Promontory School. We'll be handing out new music! See you then!

Lost ring - NUYCO

Hi families!

The attached picture is of a ring that was found in the Promontory library earlier this week. The school wondered if it belonged to someone in our group? Let me know!

Weekly Info - NUYCO

Hi families! We had a blast at the retreat. We missed the members who couldn't come, but we'll catch you next year! We also handed out t-shirts, either at the retreat or Saturday's rehearsal. Wear them around, show them off, recruit more players! :)

NUYCO Photo Album: Here are a few videos and pictures I took at the retreat! Check them out. It gives you a look at the 24 hours of semi-organized chaos. :) Photos from future rehearsals, parties, and concerts will also be added here.

Youtube Playlist: Maestro has uploaded full piece recordings of this concert's pieces. It may be helpful to listen to them when you practice!

Attendance Form: Please let me know if you won't be attending rehearsal! We base our rehearsal plans around the members who attend; if we plan sectionals and then the entire cello section is absent (without letting me know), we have a big problem! Here's a handy dandy link to the attendance form. Fill it out for the whole year. Or the night before. I don't really care. Just please fill it out. :) The link is always at the bottom of every email, as well!

Concert: The first concert is scheduled for November 12 at 7 PM at Ogden High School. Save the date! More info, of course, will be coming about parking, location, schedule, etc.

See you on Saturday, 9:30-11 AM! 

18 October 2021

Retreat, Concert time, extra rehearsal date - NUYS

1. Volunteers: I need another dad to stay overnight at the retreat. Thanks to all who have signed up to help! Please look at the volunteer spreadsheet for more opportunities... We also need a few more people to sign up for (or just bring!) Saturday afternoon snacks for the retreat. 

2. The concert time is about to be solidified at 7 pm on Friday November 12. If that's a problem for anyone as far as getting to the concert and performing with us (call time will be earlier!), SPEAK NOW or FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE. I have asked several times now, but I'm just checking one more time before publicity kicks in. 

3. Just a heads-up: the date of an extra practice for this concert, if we decide to set one up, will be TUESDAY, November 9th (not Thursday as originally anticipated).  

I'll be in touch if I think of anything else! 

Retreat info including links to the roommate form, and google maps to the camp.

Retreat Info & Volunteer Needs - NUYS

Greetings! 

Tomorrow's Rehearsal...
We will have sectionals for 45 minutes, including strings sections, then a full orchestra rehearsal starting at 9:15 am.
8:00 Doors unlock, come help set up, turn in papers or anything else before rehearsal
8:30 sectionals - brass to the left, woodwinds to the right, violin 1 on the stage, violin 2 in the library, violas in the entry hall, cellos in the gym, basses can choose to stay with cellos or go into the hall
9:15 full rehearsals - music order will put the Beethoven last so those who don't play will be dismissed early
11:00 clean up
11:30 doors lock (chamber will be at retreat, so it'll just be us!)

Retreat
Our retreat is two weeks away on 22 and 23 October! For those of you who are new, we take a 24 hour time-out at a camp with amenities. 

Yes, bathrooms. Flush toilets. Showers. They feed us, and we use the lodge for rehearsal space. Chances to play games, get to know each other, and just enjoy the time away, and also have 3 intensive rehearsals for the upcoming concert!  It takes the place of our regular Saturday morning rehearsal. 

Many of you have already paid the $60 (this just covers the cost - the money goes straight to the camp).  There are heated cabins, four with 10 beds each, and four with 6 beds each. There are safe places to keep your instrument, and the lodge is heated, even overnight for those with large instruments. 

We need at least 2 adult women, and at least 2 adult men to come as chaperones to keep tabs on all the crazy musicians (just kidding - they do sleep at night!). Your overnight fee ($30) is covered, but we ask you to pay for whatever meals you eat with us. If you can't come for the whole time but can at least come overnight, we can also accommodate your schedule. 

Please see the linked PDF for all the details, a chance to request a cabin mate, and a volunteer spreadsheet to sign up for all things NUYS (not just the retreat!).

TShirts, medical forms, etc
Those missing forms etc have been reminded separately.

Thanks, y'all! See ya in the morning!

🎶

NUYCO Retreat - one last email

My apologies if you received this twice, once this morning and now. My 7 AM brain had a problem and sent this to last year's NUYCO group. Whoops!

One last email about retreat...

1) Please bring your own music stand if you have one available.

2) Please bring a coat/jacket, gloves, and a hat/beanie! It will be cold and rainy for a good portion of our retreat.

See you TOMORROW, Friday, October 8!

-- Josie Anderson | NUYCO Managing Director

NUYS - Concert Time Request & Other Details

Concert Time - Super Important!
Our concert is scheduled for November 12, which is a Friday, at Ogden High School. I have heard from one student who would need the concert to be later in the evening, at 7pm.  If you have a conflict with the concert being this late, I need to hear from you. This could mean you are in a pit orchestra that night, and you need the concert to be earlier in the evening instead of later. 

I strongly request you contact me ASAP regarding any insurmountable conflicts. A reply to this email would be fine.

Additional details 
I will be sending additional emails this week regarding missing Shirt Orders (have you ordered yours? If not yet, click here for the t shirt order form). 

There are still medical forms needed so I can turn in food restrictions to the camp for retreat, and so we have your info in case of emergency during any other activities. Everyone who hasn't turned one in yet will be contacted separately.  

A few haven't taken care of their tuition and payment form. If you are one of those, please bring it Saturday!

Retreat is Oct 22-23. We are going! Yes! If you haven't already decided what you are doing, I need to hear from you. If you can't come to the whole 24 hours (preferred), you can come to part of it. But we have to know your plans, and will adjust your fee accordingly.

A rehearsal plan will be sent separately! 

Thanks!
Julie

NUYCO Retreat is on Friday! All the info here

If you are not attending retreat, disregard this email. Do not come to rehearsal on Saturday at Promontory! No one in NUYCO will be there. :)

Hello families! At long last, here is all the info you will need for the retreat THIS FRIDAY! Text (435.452.8173) or email me with questions!

-- Directions: Here are handy dandy directions for getting to the camp. 

-- Sleeping Info: At Camp Earley, everyone sleeps in one lodge. Girls on one side, boys on the other, with a line of adult chaperones down the middle.

-- Packing List: This won't be a comprehensive list. Bring anything else you think you might need. :)

-- Itinerary: Find the schedule here. Drop off is 5 PM on Friday; pick up is 5 PM on SaturdayYou are welcome to join us for the whole retreat or part of it! 

-- Check in: All NUYCO members will be checked in AND out by a parent or guardian. We will confirm that we 1) have your permission form, 2) your payment, 3) ask if you are sleeping over, and 4) get the parent/guardian's signature. If you carpool with someone besides your parent/guardian, please make sure I have all the forms and payments I need and that I know your sleeping arrangements! NUYCO members cannot attend retreat until we have the $30 retreat payment and the permission form. If you don't know if I have yours, *please ask*. :)

-- Carpool: I don't set up carpools. But if you would like to set up a carpool from Cache County or Weber County, etc., I am happy to send you contact info for other families who live in your area. This would need to be done before Friday. :) Adult specialists are not able to help with carpools, just NUYCO families.

-- Volunteers: We need at least one male to chaperone. Maestro West will be the other male chaperone. Please contact me asap if you are available! If you cannot do it the whole time, for only Friday evening or the overnight or Saturday, that is good too. Just tell me!

-- Food Offerings: Your $30 retreat payment goes towards the camp fee and the food, so we will be providing the meals. But we would welcome any desserts or snacks! Anything from brownies and cookies to clementines and Ritz crackers. Text or email me if you would like to contribute something. Maestro loves homemade desserts, so bonus points for that. One of the NUYCO members does have a peanut allergy; she is good at managing it and we will have peanut free items available, but she might appreciate a dessert or two that she could have. :)

We are so excited! See you there!

NUYS Announcements and important reminder

Greetings!

Rehearsal Time - important reminder
This Saturday's rehearsal is on the EARLY SCHEDULE. We start at 8 am and run until 10 am. We did announce this last Saturday and it has been on the calendar from the beginning, so hopefully everyone has internalized the message. 

Rehearsal Plan
This Saturday our goal is to give everyone a better overview of the music, see how everyone fits together, and gain more confidence in what you need to practice. So we will be together the whole time - no sectionals. We will begin with Beethoven, and we have decided to ONLY play the first movement of the Beethoven 6th Symphony, at least for this concert. We will also be sightreading a new piece, Hatikvah by Eliot Del Borgo. I (Julie) think you'll like it. 

Here is the order of the rehearsal. If you do NOT play in the Beethoven 1st movement, you may sneak in at 8:30 am instead of beginning rehearsal at 8.
7:30 doors unlock
8:00 rehearsal begins
Beethoven 6th, mvt 1
Russian Christmas Music
Hatikvah
Saint-Saens
10:00 rehearsal ends - please help clean up!
10:15 doors lock


Thanks! Still working on the volunteer spreadsheet, and will let you know when it's ready so you can sign up to help out!

See you Saturday!

Julie
