Youth Wind Ensemble Winter Quarter

Dear Youth Wind Ensemble (winter quarter 2021),
Welcome to BYSO’s winter quarter 2021!  We will be meeting on Mondays from 7:45 – 9:00pm for 8 rehearsals, beginning this Monday, January 4.  Because we will not be rehearsing on MLK Day and Presidents Day, our final rehearsal will be March 8.
Our repertoire will be Mozart’s Serenade in C minor, K. 388 and a new composition by Miles Baker entitled Through The Enchanted Forest (I am abbreviating it to TTEF) which I think you will really enjoy. I have attached an mp3 file of it for you to listen to.
I have attached the parts of both compositions for you.
The Mozart parts are:
Here is your Zoom invitation.  You should also have received an email directly from ical with the invitation as an attachment.
Meeting ID: 987 2969 2517
Passcode: 573133
If you are interested in listening to a professional recording of the Mozart, here is my favorite from YouTube.

Youth String Ensemble Blue – Shiang-Yin Lee – Winter
Franz Schubert String Quartet “The Death and the Maiden” in D minor, D. 810, first movement.
Dear Youth String Ensemble Red (winter quarter 2021),
Welcome to BYSO’s winter quarter 2021!  We will be meeting on Mondays from 6:15-7:30pm for 8 rehearsals, beginning this Monday, January 4.  Because we will not be rehearsing on MLK Day and Presidents Day, our final rehearsal will be March 8.
Our repertoire will be Shostakovich’s Sinfonia for String Orchestra, Op. 110a.  It is also known as his Chamber Symphony for Strings.  And to further confuse the issue, it is based on his String Quartet No. 8.  If you are looking for recordings, YouTube performances, etc., always look for Op. 110a.
I have attached the bowed string parts for you. We will be playing the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th movements.  (We may read through the 3rd movement but I did not have it bowed and we will not be recording it unless you are very ambitious.)
Here is your Zoom invitation.  Please copy and paste the link when you want to enter the rehearsal.  You should also have received one directly from ical.
Meeting ID: 959 2118 8727
Passcode: 385764
If you are interested in hearing a professional performance of the composition, here is a link to a YouTube performance that I especially like.
Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
I look forward to our rehearsals!
Sincerely,
Dr. Metzger Howe
