Retreat Info & Volunteer Needs - NUYS


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!)

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!
