Welcome Accelerando!

Dress Rehearsal next week at Immanuel Baptist Church
Concert, Thursday, December 7!
Christmas Concert Details:
Wednesday, December 6, 2023 : Dress Rehearsal – regular class times @ Immanuel Baptist Church
Thursday, December 7, 2023: CONCERT!
Please arrive at 6:15pm to unpack, get tuned, and take class pictures.
Please make sure your instrument is tuned! There will be people to help you.
Concert Attire:
Boys: Plack pants, white dress shirt, black shoes, black socks, black belt
Girls: Black skirt or pants, white blouse, black shoes. (Keep in mind you will be on an elevated stage, so pay attention to skirt/dress lengths).
**Given it is Christmas, we can wear anything festive, keeping in mind the guidelines for dress code (no jeans, no low-cut necklines, no sleeveless shirts/dresses, skirts for girls must be below the knee when seated).**
Cripple Creek: Practice with a metronome or recording. The pizz tends to be rushed. When you have the melody play louder, when you have anything else, play softer
Nutcracker: Practice our new dynamics and exaggerate them. When you have melody play louder, when you have anything else, play softer
Brave Fires: More attention to dynamics. You all are sounding great on this but its been all one dynamic so far. Lets make it exciting!
Barcarolle: Listen to the recording every day.  You all are doing much better with this but it is still a little unstable. I suggest also practicing along with the recording (use a loud speaker or headphones to help you hear the recording better).
Watch out for C# and G#, and anything longer than a half note should be counted VERY carefully.
