Senior Singing Strings newsletter – April 2013
Here is another instalment (hopefully the last of this term) of the newsletter to keep us all organized!
As said before, we know that you all have incredibly busy schedules, but please keep up with your commitment to orchestra to help us be as successful as we can be as a group! We are in the final stretch now and need everyone at rehearsal whenever they are in the province!
Please keep in touch – if you are unable to make a rehearsal, please let us know via the easiest method possible: 1. Text Natalie, 2. Email Natalie and Jen or 3. Send Natalie a Facebook Message.
Remember that attendance at a dress rehearsal for a concert is mandatory, and if you miss a dress rehearsal for a gig, you won’t be paid for that gig.
Music you should have in your folder:
- Rutter: Suite for Strings (all 4 movements)
- Wagner: Overture to ‘Rienzi’
- Menken: Music from ‘Enchanted’
- Haydn: Symphony No. 13
- Holst: Moorside Suite (First 2 movements definitely – 3rd movement will come)
- Mozart: Divertimento #1 (first movement)
Here is the schedule right now for the next few months: (please note that schedule is subject to change – please bring all your music EVERY week!) Every so often we will also rehearse gig music, so please bring your gig music every week as well.
