I'll also let you know how I feel we're doing. Together, we're working on making excellent music together. We're exploring better intonation and musical expression. I hope we're developing a sense of camaraderie in that we're doing this hard work together. I want all of us to be proud of what we're going to accomplish in our concert at the Buskirk-Chumley in May.
I hope that you all had your instruments at home during the snow days you've had over the past few weeks. You should have had plenty of time to practice! You know I had to emphasize the practice aspect. It is through your personal practice that our group rehearsals become more productive.
We all know that we will be filmed for a project at WFIU on monday, February 22. For that, I need you to do the following:
1. Dress nicely
2. Prepare your parts
3. Be prepared to be on your best behavior, which, I need to reiterate, should be your regular behavior.
These are the things that I think we should focus on for the project.
Our schedule will be:
6:30 Tune (quickly and efficiently)
7:20 Sokol, Twice the rising sun, (approach in the following three sections)
- Beginning to Letter F
- Letter G to Letter P
- Letter P to the end
Movements 1, 2, and 3
I'm looking forward to our next rehearsal!
