Great Auditions! A Quick Note

Dear Senior Symphony!

I know many of you are finishing up your school week or just getting ready to start school right now! You have my best wishes during this busy time, and I hope each of you have an excellent school year!

I have been so happy to hear and have the opportunity to visit with each of you over the past week. Thank you for the time and effort you have invested in performing all of the audition material and in advancing in the study of your instruments, too!  The first two rehearsals have been excellent, and I know we’ll get even better next week.  The Wind Ensemble and String Orchestra students are going to LOVE you.

Update! I believe all of the music for the fall concerts is on the Senior Symphony Member Page of now.  I have a couple more students to hear before I can settle all the part assignments, so fall assignments will be shared with you late next week.  Viola, Cello, Bassists you can go ahead and start learning your parts. Violinists and everyone else, you are welcome to check out what we’ll be playing on the Senior Symphony member page and begin noodling around on the parts on the site.

Over the next few days, please listen to all the repertoire—just get it all in your ears.

Folders and printed music will be given to all of you on Monday, September 11th.

A little reminder of what’s next is just below.

The Welcome Concerts are intended for the students in Wind Ensemble and String Orchestra.  Parents and family members shouldn’t plan to attend these due to the lack of audience room in Youth Arts Hall—though I can’t keep you from loitering nearby : )  The orchestra sounds terrific!  We will not wear concert dress, just like nice–no shorts though, please.  I will also prepare some brief remarks for a couple of you to read, too.

Again, I am so happy you are a part of the orchestra!  I hope you have a super Friday and a great weekend.  I will be out of the office through next Monday—if you need me, I will be back with a smile on Tuesday.
