Dear LYS Family,
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and also I truly wish you all
Happy Holiday's and a very Happy New Year!!!
While we all can relax and recharge during the holidays, those of you in LYSO, please also do not forget about Tchaik 5;) For very advanced pieces like this one, the key to good practice results is
. Last minute practices is of course better than no practice... but it will not secure a good audition;) Tchaik 5 is such a wonderful piece, but also very difficult to pull off well. Let us all work together diligently and give this piece what it deserves!!!
Please also keep spreading the word about LYS!!! Our December audition only had 4 students auditioning... We really need much bigger orchestras and ensembles in order to pull off great symphonic masterpieces!!!
In addition, while there are many studies and research articles out there regarding how the brain is affected by playing a musical instrument... I thought this little bonus was a fun one:
Looking forward to see you all in 2019:)
