That's more like it!

Friends,

Like many of you, I felt the cicb performed much better this last Tuesday. Great strides on Jupiter and Mars. Another fun rehearsal. Let's all take time this week to prepare for rehearsal this coming Tuesday. Keep working those parts that still need some tlc.

I'd especially ask you to work on Venus. The parts are right. We need to work on balance and intonation. We also need to take time to consider the accidentals, esp the double flats and sharps. Listen to a good recording then play thru your part. I will do the same. This piece takes great musicianship. 

Altos and clarinets, work the first 5 measure of Jupiter. Get us off to a great start on this masterpiece.
