Make sure you are practicing your music over the summer.  You should have received the final movement last week in an email from Mr. Bishop.  All the music has been uploaded to this site as well in case you did not receive the email or you misplaced your part.  Check under the Files/Links tab in the music files folder.  If you don't remember which part you are supposed to play I have also included the part list in the music files folder.

Remember the expectation is that you know the notes and rhythms when you show up for sectionals in just over 3 weeks.  See you soon.
