SYCB 2-22-22 Rehearsal

SYCB Members –
 
Thank you once again for a productive rehearsal this past Tuesday evening. As a reminder, communication about absences is crucial, and your attendance matters each week for the success of the ensemble.
 
Please keep listening to the recordings of the music being performed, learning how your part fits into the greater. Please take a few minutes to look over a few sections in each piece of music that you know are more challenging. Also, it is important to get with a tuner and review/learn pitch tendencies for your specific instrument. There are also great resources online for this. Being able to center and match pitch is an important skill for all musicians.
