To avoid lines please consider getting you tickets ahead of time on the website!
Here is also the letter that was sent out with information with times for Sunday!
We are looking forward to a wonderful performance!
Carnegie Hill Orchestra:
Concert is on Sunday – be at Symphony Space by 2:30!
Please watch the first video on this page – see if you feel the musicians (a youth orchestra from Venezuela) are moving too much. Are they too engaged?
I will see you on Sunday – Please play expressively!
Dear ISO Symphony musicians,
Thank you for great rehearsal on Wednesday!
We have 10 days left until the concert in Symphony Space. The ISO repertoire should be in your daily diet. I suggest you do the following to prepare and achieve excellent performance:
Wishing you complete success,

Dear Carnegie Hill Orchestra:
I hope you enjoyed the expanded brass section this week – it was indeed nice to have the students from Manhattan School of Music join with us to fill in the missing parts!
I was pleased with the “test” section of the music that I gave you. Everyone passed the Anvil Chorus Test! Please put a bit of final polish on your playing, prepare your clothes: White on top/black on bottom – and I will see you this coming Wednesday at our final rehearsal before the concert.
One note – PLEASE TAPE YOUR PAGES. A few slices of Scotch tape will hold your music together. Sometimes concert halls have drafts of air that will send individual pages flying!
Best wishes for a good winter concert!
Please see the attached rehearsal schedule from your conductor for the remainder of the year!
Carnegie Hill Orchestra: We are now in the countdown for the concert! Please polish anything that you still find difficult to play.
For the entire orchestra – Anvil Chorus – the short quarter notes before rests that have rarely been short enough. We have worked on it in rehearsal – I look for what you will do, individually, with those short notes!
For fun, here is the chili commercial that says “That’s too long!” Watch it 10 seconds, laugh, and then practice those notes.
That’s too long!
