Some of you still aren't taking practice seriously or even worse, you don't turn up for practice.
This isn't a joke, stringers. SYF is coming and we're far from ready.
We know the pieces have become an infuriating chore, but that doesn't mean we should start neglecting them.
Put feeling into your playing, try to pitch your notes perfectly, sway a little (esp. Finzi), put effort into executing every other musical detail well and the piece won't seem so boring anymore.
We know all of you are talented, we've seen it. But don't burn out now, okay?
Read some of the old posts here, too.
See you guys tomorrow :)
