1 week to go! First rehearsal Saturday 11th February!!! We will start with the Prokofiev. A read through of the Bernstein will happen at the end. John Keene will be your conductor for this rehearsal as Jon Tooby is away.

There are new Prokofiev parts in the online folder. This is the new edition we will be working from. Please only use these parts to avoid rehearsal number confusions, as this is the edition that the conductors will be using. The parts are actually readable so yay!
