Final rehearsal, a party, and concert info

Hello NUYS!

Can you believe we only have one more rehearsal left for this year?  Time sure flies when you are having fun.  I'm sending this message out early because I need everyone to make sure their schedules are clear for this final rehearsal.  Parents, if you could help us out on this we would appreciate it.  Last week's practice was a struggle because we were missing so many people, and we can't afford to have another one like that right before the concert!  We are also planning to extend the rehearsal a little longer just in case we need to work our a few bugs (practice at home and there won't be as many bugs to fix. 😁) 

Here is the schedule for this Saturday:
8:00 - Doors Unlock
8:30-9:00 - Vaugh Williams (winds/brass/percussion can sleep in)
8:45 - Winds/Brass/Percussion arrive
9:00 - 9:30 - Lord of the Rings with Chamber 
9:30 - 10:30 - Concert Run Through in concert order:
- Poet and the Peasant
- Vaughan Williams Oboe Concerto
- Beethoven Violin Concerto
- American Salute
10:30 - 11:30 - Touch ups as needed.
11:30 - 12:30 - End of the year party!

End of Year Party: Please join us for our end of year celebration! We will be handing out our Senior certificates, maybe play some games, and reminisce about the year.   Please bring snacks to share.  

April 25th - Concert: Box Elder High School (380 S 600 W, Brigham City).  Use the main entrance (South-West side of the building) to access the auditorium.  We are still working out where to unpack your cases, so stay tuned for that.  There is plenty of parking around the building.  

Schedule has changes slightly. Please make note of the new times:

4:15 - Begin stage setup (I will need help!!)
4:40 - NYUS members on stage! (Dressed in concert attire)
4:45 - 5:15 - Sound check
5:15 - 5:30 - Group Photo
5:30 - 5:45 - Lord of the Rings with Chamber
5:45 - 6:30 - NUYCO Soundcheck and Group Photo
6:30 - House doors open
7:00 - Concert begins
8:45 - Everyone has left the building. 

Concert Attire - 
  • Gentlemen: Black tux or equivalent suit, white dress shirt, black bow tie, black socks, black shoes.
  • Ladies: Black dress, formal trouser suit, or blouse & skirt, midriff covered, conservative neckline, skirts & dresses at least tea-length, slits no higher than knee, black stockings, black shoes, accessories & trim in black.
  • If you are going to wear a mask (not required) it needs to be solid black.
Folders - Please leave your folder in the black box at the end of the concert (NO EXCEPTIONS).  We have rental music which needs to be returned ASAP, and I will not have the time to hunt down missing folders.  Please do not take them home. 

That is all for now...

See you all on Saturday!
