We are now in our final week of rehearsals for concert #1. I hope that you did some important work in sectionals, and are taking time this weekend to finish up any technical work. Please note that Wednesday and Friday are both dress rehearsals in Beall Hall. Friday’s rehearsal is extended to 5:30pm. Everyone should be aware of that change as it was listed as such in the syllabus and this website from day 1. Please remember that missing a dress rehearsal constitutes a failing grade, so plan accordingly.
Monday you will receive music for concert #2 and you should begin to prepare immediately for the first reading rehearsal (Oct 29). The Brahms has updated bowings already in your part. The Mozart bowings will be posted online as pdf’s and it will be your responsibility to get the bowings in your individual part. Gershwin parts will arrive mid-week.
I am very excited about next week! I have the upmost confidence that you will do a wonderful job and that you will be proud of the fine work you have put into this performance.
