Great work on our run-throughs of the programme! I don’t have any notes to give regarding any of the pieces, but here, as discussed, are the starting counts for our four tunes, in programme order.
In the Bleak Midwinter – 3, 4 (conducted only)
Don’t Stop Believin’ – two full bars, counted out loud: 1, 2, 1-2-3-4
Edelweiss – 1, 2, 3 (conducted only)
Linus and Lucy – two full bars, counted out loud: 1, 2, 1-2-3-4
I will do my best to show, subtly, with my baton, what the tempo for each upcoming piece is before we bring instruments up for the starting counts, so that you have a longer period of time to integrate the tempo.
