NUYS Announcements for 17 April

Greetings!

I've noticed that we are getting tired and coming later and later! Please be sure to come early so you're ready for the start time of sectionals. It's a short sectional tomorrow, and every minute counts! We can power through these last few weeks and put on a stupendous concert! I believe in you! 

Here's our schedule for tomorrow:
8:00 doors unlock automatically - thanks to those who so consistently come early and help set up! You are wonderful!
8:20 prepare for sectionals
8:30 short sectionals (all separate, strings where we've been sending you, with Fanfare for a minute down the hall)
9:00 Full Orchestra 
Wieniawski will be first, for about a half hour
Capriccio Espagnol
Meistersinger
(Mr Dunn is leaving early, at which time Jarom will guest conduct the rest of the rehearsal)
(There will also be a break sometime in there!)
11:00 Pack up and put away
11:30 doors lock automatically

You know the drill with attendance, especially if you are sick or quarantined! Please let me know:
Attendance Form.

Have a most wonderful afternoon!

NUYS Announcements for tomorrow

Greetings!

Tomorrow's rehearsal will look like this: 
8:00 Doors Unlock - come help setup
8:20 Prepare for sectionals
8:30 Sectionals for 40 minutes- including splitting up the strings, and the Fanfare with the brass and percussion. Violin 1 - Entrance Hallway, Violin 2 - across from woodwinds, Viola - stage, Cello - gym, Bass - by the art class
9:15 Full Orchestra
Capriccio first, esp the 4th mvt
Announcements then 5 minute break
Meistersinger
Concerto about the last 30 minutes
11:00 Clean up

Thanks, y'all! The time of the concert may shift yet again, but probably only a half hour. Weber high band changed their concert date, so we only need to worry about our Chamber orch and their concert master playing with South Cache MS at 7! What a rollercoaster. 

Have a lovely day! See you tomorrow for our regular rehearsal time, and remember the drill about being sick, quarantined, or absent. Here is the link to the Attendance Form.

Announcements - Tomorrow's Early Rehearsal and Concert Schedule for May 17th

Greetings!

Reminder: Early rehearsal tomorrow -- 8 to 10 am
7:30 am doors unlock
8:00 Sectionals (half hour)
Brass and Woodwinds in their normal places
Percussion with Brass for all pieces, Fanfare rehearsal during sectional
Violin 1 on Stage
Violin 2 across from woodwinds
Viola in the entry hall
Cello in the gym
Bass by the art room
8:30 Full orchestra will look at spots in pieces in the following order
Capriccio Espagnol
Die Meistersinger
Wieniawski
9:55 Clean up
10:15 Doors lock


Schedule for the Concert Day (This is a change!)
In coordination with a couple schools who have conflicts on the day of our concert, and being proactive about other conflicts that might come up, we have  made the following plan for the May 17th Concert at Box Elder High School: 
3:00 pm, set up
3:30 pm, NUYS Short Sound-check Rehearsal
4:15 pm, NUYCO Short Sound-check Rehearsal
5:00 to 6:30 pm, Concert 
Hopefully this gives everyone enough lead time to participate fully. This should eliminate the conflicts that we know about (South Cache MS), and also take care of conflicts we don't know about. For those who do have a concert at 7 pm at WHS, you will be excused from the warm-up call time. That's a good thing! We neeeeed you as much as Mr W neeeeeds you!!!

One other note: 
The state-wide mask mandate is scheduled to expire April 10th. However, we will continue to follow the same guidelines we've already been using.

Thanks, everyone! You are wonderful! Thanks for making this our Miracle Year! 

See you tomorrow.... I hope you've enjoyed your spring break, or will be enjoying it soon, depending on your school schedule. If you are in town during any of this, please be sure to come to rehearsal.

And, as always, use the Attendance Form if you will be missing rehearsal... like if you are sick or have been quarantined (or get to go somewhere).

:)
Julie
