Dear PYO Member
Thank you all for working so hard at music camp and for some very fine playing at the annual concert. [nbsp]As we know there were one or two moments that still have to be secured but I am in no doubt with the luxury of more rehearsal time that we have now, the programme will be fantastic for our August concerts. Can I also thank everyone for the beautiful gifts I received from the orchestra? Gnomus is already in my garden!!
Congratulations to our two soloists on two 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.
