NEW Music for December 2021 Concert! Listen below at the links.

Leroy Anderson – Plink Plank Plunk
Keep your finger close to the string and remember to “set” before plucking so that everyone is together!
If there are any sections where the notes are confusing, play your part with the bow to get more confident with it.

Mendelssohn – Sinfonia in D Major
1st movement – Allegro
Review ALL of the first movement – check notes in the “fantasy section” while keeping it soft (mm. 33-45)
2nd movement – Andante
Review ALL – practice counting and with metronome.
Violin 2 – Copy in your bowings here!
3rd movement – Allegro vivace
(1) Listen to the third movement with your score in hand. (Third movement begins at 8:50)
(2) Practice with METRONOME at 100 for the dotted quarter note.

arr. Longfield – Music from La La Land
Practice transitions—know these measures really well so that you can look up and prepare to slow down/catch the tempo.

arr. Morales – Most Wonderful Time of the Year
Listen with your score in hand! Get used to the “Waltz in 1”. Try to count aloud so that you can hear the inner “1-2-3” beats.
