admin Letter

Dear PYO Member

Thank you all for working so hard at music camp and I felt the two concerts on Saturday and Sunday were full of a lot of very fine playing. Congratulations to all and to our two soloists on two excellent performances.

We now have a busy remainder of the session with Perth Festival of the Arts commitments, and our usual Autumn concerts in Edinburgh & Perth.

Please note all PYO members that were not at camp should try to get to as many rehearsals as possible to get used to new music.

I am aware that there are many rehearsal commitments at a very busy time with exams etc. Please try to attend as many as possible while still preparing for SQA exams.

Many thanks again.

Yours faithfully
