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!
