Important: Weekly Player Update

January 25, 2023

Dear BSO Musicians,


I'm looking forward to seeing you all next week for the start of Concert 5 rehearsals!

Please note the following:

  • The first rehearsal, January 31st is at the WWU Performing Arts Center Concert Hall.
  • Parking (lots 11G and 9G) will be reserved with signs for our rehearsal, please park in the farther lot (9G) if you do not play a large instrument.
  • All rehearsals begin with Hello Gold Mountain.
  • If you do not play in Hello Gold Mountain, rehearsal begins later (7/7:10pm most nights), no need to come at 6:30!
  • We have about 75 choral singers coming in to sing starting Tuesday of concert week.
  • Please keep your belongings (cases, music, bags) in the dressing rooms as much as possible to allow space for all the folks on the stage.

If you have any questions, please reach out!


Thank you,

Shachaf Zahavy-Mittelman
