Really a great rehearsal last night everyone. Balance and pitch made great strides. I appreciate your work and preparation for what will surely be a terrific concert. Keep practicing, listening and getting the word out about the concert.
This Tuesday is our 'dress' rehearsal. We will start with a quick warm up, tune and playing through some chunks of music. After some announcements we will do a full run of the program. Remaining time will be spent on musical chunk requests and questions.
Here is concert order. We will be moving quickly from one tune to another. I only plan on addressing the audience after Children's March and Childhood Hymn. Let me know if you have any questions.
