Look Ahead: Assignments and Schedule 9/20-10/4

Hello, Senior Symphony!

Loved that rehearsal on Monday…nice Berlioz!  Refinements need to occur principally in the Prokofiev and Shostakovich, so please dedicate attention there this week.  Also, please listen to the Rachmaninov and please play your part with the recording.  Thanks!

Please practice and prepare the following passages in Blue for this Monday 9/27. Please read to the bottom and notice what we’ll be doing each week—I will continue to send updates for you.

Thanks!

Carter
