Notes from Maestro Harville

Here are videos of our repertoire for this program:

Riegger - Dance Rhythms

Rimsky-Korskov - Symphony No. 1

The List:

As a reminder, here's how it works:

1. At rehearsal, I decide something is on The List.

2. Next rehearsal, I hear that passage with full sections. If it's not up to standard, then I hear small groups: pairs and trios for strings; individual instrument sections for winds.

3. If I'm still not satisfied, at the following rehearsal, I hear full sections, small groups, and finally individual players.

Notes from Maestra Schaeffer
