Hello NYUS!

8:00 - Doors Unlock
8:30 - Sectionals (same spots as last week)
9:30 - Combined Rehearsal
Unfinished Symphony
Variations on a Shaker Melody
Ancient Dances and Airs

11:00 - Clean up
11:30 - Doors Locked

Concert - Our concert is scheduled for Feb. 12th, @ Logan High School (162 W 100 S, Logan).  Right now that leaves only three rehearsals left!!  Hoping to schedule another evening dress rehearsal like we did for our first concert, but I'm waiting to hear back from Promontory.   

Here is the schedule for Feb. 12th:

No Rehearsal in the morning!
4:00 pm - Setup - If you can come this early, we'll appreciate your help.
5:00 - 5:30 pm - NUYS Sound Check on stage (30 minutes can go quick! So please be in your chair and ready to tune by 5:10)
5:45 - 6:30 pm - NUYCO Sound Check on stage
7:00 pm Concert! Invite friends!

Recital Night - We were unable to find a free location to host our recital night this year, so we are going to have to postpone. 

Youth Symphony Festival - Thank you to everyone who responded to last week's email. Unfortunately, after I had sent it out we received news that they had raised the price of the entrance fee.  Also, the cost of transportation (bus) has increased dramatically.  Because our group is smaller this year, we simply don't have the funds we normally have to cover these expenses.  For this reason we will have to wait till next year to participate.  

Bring a Friend -  You are our greatest recruiting tool! Don't be afraid to invite your friends to come sit in on a rehearsal and experience what it's like to play in a symphony. You could even offer to give them a wake up call and/or a ride.  Just give me a heads up so I have a chair for them. 

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week, and I'll see you on Saturday!

Jayme McKenna | NUYS Managing Director
