CHANGE of Rehearsal Date for Symphonic Band & Concert Band Members

In September we announced a series of evening rehearsals for the NY Tour. (Original post here.)

We must make one unanticipated adjustment to the rehearsal schedule for the Tour Symphonic Band (which is made up of students from our Symphonic Band and Concert Band).  This change does not impact Wind Ensemble students.

Due to a scheduling conflict with our guest artist - Peter Wilson - we must move the previously scheduled January 22 rehearsal UP ONE DAY, to Wednesday, January 21.  

Dr. Wilson will be flying in from Washington, D.C. next Wednesday to work with our students in this critically important rehearsal.  It will be the only opportunity for our combined Symphonic Band/Concert Band students to work with Dr. Wilson prior to the concert at Carnegie Hall.

The rehearsal time remains unchanged (6:30 - 8:30 PM).  

Here, then, is the complete schedule, as amended to reflect this change:

NYC Tour Families/Students are asked to please make note of the following required rehearsals and tour meeting.

Please note that not all rehearsals involve every student. Please check the dates and times carefully, and add these rehearsals (and the required meeting) to your calendar as appropriate.

  • WEDNESDAY, January 21st  – 6:30 – 8:30 PM – Concert Band & Symphonic Band Combined Rehearsal (Band Room) *** With Dr. Peter Wilson ***

  • Tuesday, January 27th – 7 PM  Final Parent/Student Meeting (Auditorium) Attendance by traveling student & at least one parent/guardian required for tour participation.

  • Wednesday, February 4th – 6:30 – 8:30 PM – Concert Band & Symphonic Band Combined Rehearsal (Band Room)
