I came in refreshed from the long weekend. Mr. O and the kids also seemed well rested and ready to go. Although, Mr. O and several kids are ill. Luckily, none of them missed the chamber ensemble concert tonight. Before school, I prepared some parts to Bach's Little Fugue and looked over the scores to Hovhaness and Adler. During cadet orchestra, Mr. O led the warm up after an extended tuning. A lot of instruments, especially cellos that stayed at school over the long weekend, were extremely out of tune. We handed out more parts and collected all of the old music from the last concert. After dealing with other logistics concerning solo night and the February field trip, I ran the first 8 bars of the Mendelssohn. In concert orchestra we also handed pout and collected music. Mr. O introduced the Adler to them. We're doing only the first movement. All of the chamber ensembles found places to rehearse during fourth period and during 5b. For the first portion of period 5, they sightread through the Bach fugue. We also helped students find solos that came in looking for direction.
