Today we had our last small-group rehearsal before the kids’ performance with the Youngstown Symphony on December 2. They practiced with the other younger students at Tina’s again. We will meet at the music hall the weekend after Thanksgiving to practice with the symphony: they’ll do a technical rehearsal on Friday night, then a rehearsal on Saturday. The actual concert is Saturday evening. The kids have mostly memorized their piece and can play it through. The next two weeks we will use to polish the piece and get it ready for the big night.
