PYO Rehearsals – Summer 2019

webmaster Rehearsals

Dear PYO Member

Thank you also all for working so hard at music camp this year.  I felt the two concerts on Saturday and Sunday were both magnificent.  Congratulations to all and, in particular, to our two soloists on excellent performances. 

In addition, I would also like to thank Mrs McGovern who conducted the PYO in my absence.  I really appreciate the extra work that Mrs McGovern put into the rehearsals and concert and that the orchestra was so supportive of her.  

We now have a busy remainder of the session with Perth Festival of the Arts commitments, PYO Tour 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
