Congratulations to those of you who performed in the recitals today. Fantastic job!
Next week we have our spring festival. Here's a reminder of the schedule:
Saturday, May 8 Dress rehearsal (Required)
2pm Suzuki rehearsal
3pm Fiddle rehearsal
Viola students, be sure to be at the Suzuki rehearsal to rehearse the Bach Gavotte with us!
Sunday, May 9 - 2pm concert. (Should be about an hour)
For the Suzuki rehearsal we will start with the pretwinklers for the first 5 or so minutes and then work our way from the twinkles up to the Bach Gavotte. That way, as the pieces get more advanced, the younger students do not have to stay for the entire rehearsal.
Here is the Festival performance order:
- La Cumparsita (Tango)
- Bill Cheatem
- Mason's Apron
- Finnish Polka
Pretwinklers: Chicken's on a Fencepost (i.e. Peanut Butter Sandwich)
Violists: Judas Maccabaeus and Minuet 3 (please check these pieces with Maggie as I may have the it wrong!)
- Bach Gavotte in G minor
- The Two Grenadiers
- The Happy Farmer
- Minuet 2
- May Song
- Go, Tell Aunt Rhody
- Lightly Row
- Twinkle Theme and Variations
We will announce the order as we go. Please be sure to be practicing your festival pieces this week! We want to play really in tune and really together so it's a really enjoyable concert for our audience. Thanks and see you all soon!
