Wow! We made it to Friday again! Hello, Senior Symphony!
Nice work getting through what I imagine has been a VERY busy week. The Chamber Orchestra started up, too, and if you’d like to play in that ensemble, we have openings. The schedule and repertoire are included below. All awesome pieces (check out Argentine Alberto Ginastera’s piece!)
As Monday is our last rehearsal of 2021 calendar year, I want to take a moment to again thank you for the time and care you give the orchestra. We are only as good as the efforts each of us make, and I appreciate everything you and your families do! I wish all of you a very warm, safe, and Happy Holiday. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, too!
