Jubilee Concert Conductor’s Notes

I’m really looking forward to our concert at The Anstice tomorrow, it’s going to be absolutely stonking! It’s been a very short and intense term, but I’m sure you can all agree that on Monday it sounded amazing. Thank you all for your hard work.
This is just a reminder of the necessary information, as well as final details for tomorrow’s rehearsal, so please read carefully.

Rehearsal order:
13:00 – Set up percussion and stage
13:15 – Members arrive
13:25 – Orchestra tunes

13:00 – Brahms – Hungarian Dance 5
13:40 – Dvorak – Slavonic Dance 4
13:50 – Dvorak – Slavonic Dance 8

16:10 – Bizet – Carmen Suites

The concert:
Will begin at 19:00. Please be in seats, ready to go at 18:55. This concert will undoubtedly be more relaxed than out ‘usual’ concerts, especially as the bar will be open throughout, but it’s important we look professional in our stage management.
The concert will finish around 21:45.

Instrument cases:
For the rehearsal, in the main hall.
For the concert, please use the library downstairs to avoid trip hazards on the stage and in our limited space.

Dress Code:
Think “BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Last Night of the Proms”. Either:
Dinner Jackets (black jacket, white shirt, black trousers) with coloured bowtie, cummerbund, pocket square, etc.
Block coloured dress/skirt/blouse with black trousers.
All black with a splash of colour!

Something like this…
