Hi everybody! Great to see you for our first rehearsal last Sunday. It was a wonderful start to the year. Also, congratulations to MYSfits on a FANTASTIC performance at the Schnitz before the Yo-Yo Ma/Oregon Symphony concert. I keep hearing wonderful feedback about our performance. Thanks to those of you who showed up to support. It meant a lot seeing you there!!
I’m sharing my rehearsal plan for next Sunday (9/17/23) below. Please be sure to prepare (i.e. practice between now and Sunday and learn your individual part before rehearsal). Additionally, I’m asking you to volunteer to annotate one of the pieces this season for ConcertCue. Finally, I’m keeping content from my previous e-mail below for your convenience (schedule, repertoire, part assignments, etc).
Rehearsal plan for 9/17/23
- 3:45pm – arrival, warm-up
- 4:00pm-5:30pm – Dukas, beginning to rehearsal #38
- 5:30pm-5:45pm – break
- 5:45pm-7:00pm – Mussorgsky, beginning to letter H
- 7:00pm-7:05pm – put room back together
Updated audio/video reference for Dukas & Mussorgsky
I updated the reference videos for both pieces on the sidebar (or down below under “Quick Links” if you’re on mobile). These performances match the original score that we’re playing. I will also create a separate post with the Disney Fantasia videos, where the pieces are cut and edited for the animations.
Calling for Concert Cue Volunteers
If you’re interested in volunteering to annotate one of our pieces this season for Concert Cue, please send me an e-mail.
We’ll work together to create the annotations and craft an informative and engaging experience for our audiences. This counts for volunteer hours if you need them at school, etc.
Below is the information that I shared last week, for your convenience.
