Welcome to the Weekly Memo!


Great start to our Holiday Concert preparation!


Regular Rehearsal tomorrow night at our normal location. Temple Israel in Viera.


We are very excited to announce that our Dec. 10th concert will be at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Downtown Melbourne! http://stpaulsmelbourne.org/ More information to follow shortly!


Special Note to Symphony Players - Please remember that this concert is set-up for us to get to perform alongside and be mentored by the Philharmonic members. The music difficulty level is set in such a way that we are not expected to be able to play all of it. This is completely normal as the Philharmonic players will cover the more difficult sections and we will "fake it". Please do not get frustrated with these sections. Just enjoy listening to the Phil players and then play all of the parts that you feel comfortable with!


See everyone tomorrow!

Thank you to all of the families that sent in food for the students during the rehearsal. It was absolutely perfect and greatly appreciated by all of the students.

Tomorrow (Monday) begins our preparation for our Dec. 10th concert. Because it is a new concert cycle please invite your friends to come with you! This is the perfect time for anyone to jump in!


For this concert we will be keeping our small ensembles at the beginning of the rehearsal. Then we are going to be combining the Symphony and Philharmonic orchestras for our annual Huge Holiday blow out Orchestra. At 8:00-8:30 pm each night the Philharmonic strings will be working on String Ensemble music and the Philharmonic Winds will be working on band music.
