Rehearsal this Saturday

Hello NUYS!!

You all were wonderful last Saturday!!!!  I got chills standing backstage during the Variations on a Shaker Melody, and I heard so many positive comments from our audience.  Job well done!

Time to start preparing for our final concert which has been scheduled for April 25th, @ 7:00 pm (sound check at 5:00), at Box Elder High School. This is a perfect time to invite friends to come play with us.  Just give me a heads up! 

Here is our rehearsal schedule for this Saturday (new music time, so you don't want to miss it!):
8:00: Doors Unlock
8:30 - 11:00: Sight-reading/Introduction to the following pieces. 
- Beethoven Violin Concerto, 1st Mvt. - Featuring our Chamber Conductor, Mr. Nathan West. Trombone and Tuba are excused
- Vaughan Williams Oboe Concerto, 1st Mvt- with concerto winner, Alexis Jensen (we don't have this one yet, but please listen to it.  This is a strings only piece.)

Please take some time before our rehearsal to listen to these pieces.  It will greatly help with our sight-reading experience if you have an idea as to what the pieces sound like!

 See you on Saturday!
Jayme McKenna | NUYS Managing Director
