Dear Orchestra – the following is Rob’s rehearsal schedule towards the June 29th concert:
28th May: No rehearsal
4th June: Gershwin, break, Mozart and Bach
11th June: String rehearsal
18th: June: Gershwin, Ruy Blas, Carousel, Bohemian Rhapsody,
25th June: Everything (big to small)
29th June: 2.00pm at HPC: this again is likely to be everything from large to small. Concert 7.30pm.
I now have the full orchestral set of “An American in Paris”. The Dudamel performance on YouTube is excellent and the same version as ours. I recommend players experience this performance, especially string players, before next Tuesday when we will concentrate mostly on that. This rehearsal will therefore be worthwhile for all extra players
On June 18th & 19th we are auditioning 6 candidates for our future conductor and need orchestra members to be part of the auditioning committee. If you can attend both dates and wish be part of the auditioning panel please contact Ruth.
