Cadet Messages

Dear Cadet String Orchestra Musicians and Families,

I am excited to see many returning faces next Monday, and I am looking forward to welcoming all of our new musicians as well.

We are finalizing the last few details regarding rehearsals, but until the next letter goes out, here are a few bits:

  1. We will be performing Lijiang River Landscape by Albert Wang. The piece is based on folk melodies about the Lijiang River in the Guanxi Province. Mr. Wang, composer and violist, studied at the Guangzhou Conservatory, and held a principal viola position with the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra. Music will be available here on the BYSO website by Friday, 9/24. Paper copies will be available at the first rehearsal, but you are welcome to print off on your own. Violinists – please check your part assignments at the bottom of this page.
  2. CLICK HERE to access sheet music (Lijiang River Landscape)  Violinists – please make sure you find your part assignment (see bottom of page)
  3. CLICK HERE to access a recording of Lijiang River Landscape
  4. For each rehearsal, musicians will need to bring their (1) instrument, (2) music and pencil, and (3) a music stand.

Please feel free to reach out at or with any questions!
