Seniors – Updated Schedule April 2013

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.

The Isle Awards

The Isle Awards have asked us to play for their even on April 27th in Summerside at the Loyalist Inn, from 6 until approximately 9pm. There will be more details coming later, but for the moment, I need to know which of the Seniors will be able to come that night? I know that night is also Dance umbrella’s final performance, and if you have already committed to that performance, I wouldn’t want you to miss that commitment.

I also would need to know which parents would like to come to the Isle Awards – we are allowed 2 free tickets up to a maximum of 30 so please let me know if you would like to come!

Can all Seniors email Natalie to let her know if they are available to play at the Isle Awards and if parents/family members would like tickets?

Many thanks,
