Menu for 1/15 Rehearsal – Dan Forrest music
For those of you who are new to us, I try to make every effort to get you a rehearsal plan on the Monday before rehearsal so you can put your music in order. As you know we have a ton of music to learn, so, if your music is in order BEFORE you get in your seat, we can zip along and save precious minutes.
In this rehearsal plan, we will be working strictly Dan Forrest music. In order to give each of the 11 pieces in the plan due diligence, I am asking that announcements be limited to 1 session of 12 minutes.
I am very happy with your reading last week, but for you veterans, you know it kills me to let all sorts of things go by. But you were VERY musical in your mistakes!!!! Ha!
Please know that I want to take advantage of the good weather we seemingly will have this Wednesday and hopefully will have in the future to get good, solid, efficient rehearsals in. If you remember, last year we lost 4, count them 4, rehearsals due to bad traveling weather during January and February. As I look back we really lost continuity and zeal for our work. The concert was wonderful but we really did loose precious time. I learned! What do they say: PLAN AHEAD.
If you haven’t gotten a rehearsal tape and will benefit from hearing the Forrest songs for familiarization and perhaps note-learning, do so. Linda has done a great job of putting together good performances of Dan’s music.
