Dear PYO Member

Thank you 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 three soloists on excellent performances.

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
