This week we will be tidying up any technical deficits left for our Oct 28 premiere concert. Please prepare carefully the specific sections to be rehearsed. We will read the Stravinsky this Friday, but next week we will begin some serious reflection on how we sound. Monday Oct 15, we will have the opportunity to perform for Chris Rogerson via Skype. Also, please prepare some questions for him regarding his work on Oaken Sky or his life as a young musician. Wednesday Oct 17, we will record our entire concert repertoire, and Friday we will listen to excerpts from that recording so we all hear the same thing, noting any deficits to address during the last week of rehearsals. That means the time is now to wrap-up any individual issues that affect our performance. You are doing a great job! Let’s keep demanding excellence from ourselves and knock everyone’s socks off.
