Dear Bravi and VTG,
For next rehearsal, please work to prepare all your music for the CYS Festival on March 2nd – we have two more rehearsals before our performance then! We will be performing the following pieces:
El Ultimo Café – remember to keep it light. Read the translation here. (Wow – those are some words!!) Please have this memorized by Monday.
Tristeza – please have this memorized by Monday.
Missa Criollo – Kyrie and Gloria – you can hear and watch the whole work here; our pieces are at the beginning of the video. Please spend some time getting the feel of this piece in your heads.
The Girl from Ipanema, Besame Mucho, and One Note Samba – we will very possibly be doing these, so have them ready to go, please. VTG, please have them mostly memorized by Monday.
Another note – VTG, there is NO REHEARSAL this coming Tuesday, 3/22. Enjoy your time off!
And, finally, good luck to Simon as he performs the Faure Requiem with the Symphony Silicon Valley this weekend!
