We have an invitation to perform with the Ohio Northern University Symphony. If you didn't fill out the form, please do so today - Dr Waters needs to get the programs to the printer to make sure that they are correct.
The Finale Concert is on May 15, which is surprisingly close: we only have 2 rehearsals left before dress rehearsal! Call time will be 2:00 PM on stage at Lima Senior High School in the auditorium. Dress is formal black & white, please. We will rehearse from 2-3 PM, and then have pictures. Ayers Photography will be doing the pictures. The form for pictures is uploaded in the Members' Section. Concert will begin at 4:00 PM, and last for roughly 75 minutes. Cadet Orchestra will be first on the program. See Mr MacBenn for detailed concert/program information. Tickets will be on sale... soon? I believe that the cost is $10/ticket (should be same as Christmas Concert).
Awards lunch will be on Thursday, May 26, 2022 at the American Legion Post 96 in Lima, Ohio at 11:00 AM. At the time of writing this, I have no idea what is on the menu. If you are still in school, an excused absence letter will be posted for you - you will need to print it out & hand it in to the proper authorities. If you are one of those unfortunate few who has major tests that day, or something of that nature, please do not feel pressured to come. LAYO & Cadet Orchestra members will be paid for. Guests, including parents, will need to pay for tickets: $11/per person. American Legion Post 96 is at 711 South Shore Drive, Lima Ohio 45804. Or, if you know Lima, it's on the corner of Metcalf & South Shore, across from Caprella's, along the bike trail.
I sent out a Google Form to all members & parents for whom I have email address for - please fill this out ASAP (like... tonight!) so that Dr Waters can get an accurate count of who's going to be at ONU Symphony. There are Luncheon questions on there as well - if you need to fill the form out again later to make sure it's correct, that's fine.
As if that wasn't enough.... I want to have information posted for auditions the week after Easter! Personally, I would like to do auditions on the first weekend in June, but, Dr Waters and I will have to discuss it further. Virtual auditions WILL be an available option for anyone who would like to do so.
Thanks LAYO family for doing an awesome job. Let's keep it up!
