Rehearsing the Spirit of the Season

Behind the Scenes

September started with a call for auditions. On Nov. 15th the musicians came together for their 1st rehearsal as a full symphony. Many are just meeting for the first time – all are playing together for the first time. It was so impressive to listen and watch as Dallas Aimer, conductor & music director, and the talented musicians work through the pieces adjusting tempo, key changes, timing, cues, dynamics, and transitions.
