Walton Symphony Orchestra: Practicing Hard!

Walton Symphony Orchestra is practicing hard to be ready for our performance at Lassiter Concert Hall on Wednesday, October 16 at 7:30 pm. We are excited to be playing the first and fourth movements of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, the Main Title from the Star Wars Suite by John Williams (not an arrangement!), and Conga del Fuego Nuevo by Arturo Márquez. As we continue to make great progress in class, we hope that everyone is spending some quality time at home with any tricky spots in the music, especially Star Wars. Be ready for Monday night rehearsals!

Walton Symphony: Midwest is almost here!

After a successful preview concert at KSU’s Bailey Center, the Walton Symphony Orchestra is just days away from their trip to Chicago to perform at the Midwest Clinic! Symphony members, you may want to start packing (and check the weather so you don’t freeze). Final exams are just around the corner, but relax- an unforgettable trip is coming up soon!

If you have any questions or concerns about the trip, make sure to address them as soon as possible so that we can have a safe and awesome time in Chicago!

For all things Midwest, including a packing list, medication forms, and exam reminders, go to the Walton Orchestra Midwest page.

Chamber Society from Kristy Fan

Hello Chamber Society! Kristy here. First order of business is community service. A group should at Sunrise every other Saturday (Sept 8th being the next one), so email me at kristyfan.95@gmail.com if your group wants to sign up for a day! You will need to play half an hour from 1:00 to 1:30, but get there a little earlier than 1:00 so you can set up and tune. You should bring your instrument, music, tuner, shoulder rest/rock stop, and stand. You can play wedding music or whatever your quartet has played together. Sunrise is located at 1551 Johnson Ferry Rd 30062.
Now rehearsals. Chamber Society will have rehearsals every Wednesday WEB from 1:00-3:00 and every Monday from 3:30 to 6:00 until November 15th, the concert date. BUT WAIT! You don’t have to come to all of them. You should come to as many as you need to sound perfect for the concert or Sunrise. The November 5th or November 12th rehearsal is mandatory. Your group should sign in and out every time you practice in the orchestra room so that I can keep track of community service hours. The sign in sheet will be hung up in a prominent place, so never fear!
New groups should practice wedding music because it’s a nice starter. The practice parts for that will be ready by Wednesday (8/29) morning. They will be in the front of the orchestra room where all the other practice parts are.
Alright, that’s it! Have fun in Chamber Society this year!
These are the rehearsals planned for this year.
