Dear Senior Symphony,
I hope you are having a wonderful week after such a great concert! Congratulations to all of you, and thank you for all you did to make Saturday so incredible.
I am very proud of you, and I just love being your conductor!
So, even more good news! Yes, it’s true, if you haven’t heard, we won the pizza party! I think we’ll do this around the holidays, right?
Anyway, I hope you have a GREAT week. Give a listen to our music (below) which you’ll be getting soon—that Villa-Lobos is going to be super fun.
