Dear Bravi,

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving, and are enjoying the rest of your time off!

We’re right up against it – our next rehearsal is our last before the dress rehearsal! Please remember that this rehearsal is mandatory, as we will be putting the finishing touches on everything before the concert.

Please also remember to send in, if you have not already, your recordings of Go Tell It to both myself and to Elena before Monday’s rehearsal; if we do not see these, we will assume that you are unable to perform the song and may ask you not to sing it on the concert.

You will need to review all your music before our final rehearsal on Monday. If you are unsure of notes or rhythms on any sections of the music, please spend particular time on those areas – we will not have time to practice individual notes on Monday.

Finally, please review the following information about Tuesdays’ dress. Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday!

Mr. Belles

Dear Bravi, Thank you for your hard work on Monday night. I always enjoy working with you, and particularly appreciate your willingness to work towards artistic excellence. Behavior was a bit crazy from some of us on Monday; I believe that that was an aberration, and so expect that it will be much better next rehearsal. We have very, very […]

Dear Bravi, Good rehearsal overall on Monday! Please take some time to review your rehearsal schedule that I handed out during last rehearsal, and make sure that your memory work is all up to speed on the pieces that is should be. This week, please spend time perfecting The Rose – all words certainly need to be memorized, but now […]
