Rehearsal! Welcome back! NUYCO

Hello NUYCO! It's been a minute. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break. We are so excited to get back into rehearsals!

We will have our normal rehearsal time this Saturday, January 8, 9:30-11:00 AM. One change, however - Maestro will be gone! Haha. So the section specialists are running sectionals for the entire rehearsal instead (with the usual break - your specialist is in charge). Please find your section below and focus your practicing on the spots listed! Come to rehearsal prepared to work hard!

Fiddler on the Roof - movement 1, m. 36-59; movement 5, m. 1-24

Saturday Night Waltz - divisi section

American Fiddler's Hoedown - Melodies
*** Practice slower to get better intonation. Start with one note at a time. If you'd like, look up a drone note on Youtube and practice with that. If the piece is in the key of D, look up a cello drone note D.

American Fiddler's Hoedown - all transitions from pizzicato to arco; intonation at 56-62
Fiddler on the Roof - intonation in movements 1, 2, 3, and 6 

See you on Saturday! As always, *please* *please* *please* fill out the Attendance Form if you will be absent!
