Hello, YS members,
Congrats again on your concert last Sunday. We certainly have items to work on, but I think you should be very proud of what you were able to do. I know that I am looking forward to our spring concert already!
You might be receiving these in a “read and heed” soon, but here are also the photos from the concert:
I’m getting ahead of myself, though – we have our December performances in the meantime. A reminder that there will be no rehearsal on Monday November 22 (Thanksgiving week).
Here the schedule for next time and what I plan to work on (and likewise what you should prioritize for this rehearsal):
Monday November 15 (4 rehearsals before dress rehearsals/concerts)
5:00-6:15 MR Hall
6:15-6:30 MR Hall
Warmup (on your own)
Possibility Assignment (discussion)
6:30-7:15 MR Hall
Russian Christmas Music
Russian Christmas Music (perhaps continued)
Christmas at the Movies
8:00-8:10 Break (Lobby)
8:10-9:00 MR Hall
A Christmas Festival
(maybe the sing-a-long piece if I ever receive it)
Any technical parts that prove challenging for you. You might be experienced with some of these pieces, or they may all be new! Generally, I’d say that Russian Christmas Music might be higher on the priority list overall, but feel free to isolate what you need.
Be more generous than you think you have the resources for (extended edition – Nov-Dec).
