COUNTDOWN before concert (as of Tuesday, October 24):

19 days

Hi all!

I was very pleased with our rehearsal on Sunday. Keep up the great work!

It’s 19 days before our concert.

Please make sure to practice “Music for an Imaginary Cartoon” now that we have our final parts. String section principals: please add bowings this week.

Recap: 10/22/23

  • 4pm-5:15pm: we read and worked on the final version of “Music for an Imaginary Cartoon.” We discovered some issues in the parts, particularly between [B] and [C]. Expect some kind of insert for this section.
  • 5:15pm-5:40pm: read-through of Dukas (mostly good!!) and some work on this piece.
  • 5:50pm-6:30pm: work on Poor Unfortunate Souls
  • 6:30pm-7:00pm: Totoro
