Both Rudy and I would like to thank all the SSYO families and especially the orchestra musicians for their work this season. We were saddened to have it end the way it did! The last time we met as an orchestra was the Finlandia rehearsal with Gordon back on March 9th - boy, has a lot changed since then!!
Thank you for your performances in Banff and the Christmas Tea concert. Keep up your practicing - musicians are very used to 'self-isolation' because of practicing. You will never get this opportunity again - to have this much time to devote to your instrument and to grow as musicians. Listen to good music online or with what you have in your own music library. Sight-read some music - get more familiar with the great composers out there - Bach, Mozart, Beethoven etc. Have fun listening to and learning from these special composers. Down the road you will thank me for it. Rudy Sternadel will be sending out an email to all SSYO families soon in regards to music folder collection.
All the best to all of you and stay safe and stay healthy.
