Day 72 - York Community High School

Mr. O handled the majority of rehearsals today. I helped him find some additional music for chamber ensembles that have a gig tonight. One student came in before school seeking help in finding music to supplement their gig folder. Quite a few of them are using the kaleidoscope Christmas collection for the Barnes and noble gig on Monday, and the quartet playing tonight was looking for additional copies of the books.  I was able to sit in on violin for some of the Hovhaness. After they finished rehearsing the choir pieces, several players were excused and I filled in. It's great to see how much collaboration occurs between the choir, band, orchestra, dance, and music tech departments. All of the directors seem to get along very well and it is understood that students are expected to participate in concerts for other ensembles. The top players in the orchestra have so many performance opportunities because of the cohesive fine arts program.
