Weekly Updates

Sunday,  October 30, Dress Rehearsal & Concert

Dear Philharmonic,

We certainly "leveled up" in our concert preparation last weekend. I am thrilled that we no longer need to stop during the run-thrus. Continue to review ALL of your music DAILY until the concert. Look for the details and how you can get better at the nuances such as dynamics and articulation. 

A few words about the final rehearsal:
1. Be IN YOUR SEAT on stage at the Palladium at 1:25pm on Sunday. 
2. You may wear casual clothes to the rehearsal and change later. (Or wear your concert clothes to the rehearsal.)
3. A few of you will sit in slightly different locations on stage, since the stage is bigger than our rehearsal room.
4. Rehearsal order is:
    -1:25 Tuning
    -1:30 Sinfonie
    -1:45 Shannon Falls
    -2:00 Dance
    -2:15 Run thru

Thank you for being part of IYO Philharmonic! You are blossoming musicians, and I am proud of your work this fall! The concert is going to be a lot of fun on Sunday. 

See you Sunday,
Mrs. Ohly-Davis
