As usual, I started off with the preparation of parts. After we settled on Gesu Bambino for the concert orchestra, we discussed some considerations for that piece. Then, we discussed briefly pieces that might work with the symphony orchestra. We used Friday to brush up on earlier pieces with the cadet orchestra, so I didn't lead rehearsal. In concert orchestra we handed out parts to the soloists. During the fourth period I worked with the soloist on her part. I had to leave school early in order to meet my wife at the doctor for our first ultrasound!!!
