Hi Noah,

We are putting together the program for the concert. You'll need to update your bio as you want it to appear in the program.
Update the bio in Profile and click edit to update the description of the work. The description should be for an audience, not a technical run down of the work at this point.

Congratulations on all you've done!

Best Wishes,

Mike Close

Hi Noah,

Nice work with these edits. The score is in good shape. Just one or two more things-

-m.29-33 that's a long time to sustain a crescendo that only goes from mp to mf. You might want to make the crescendo shorter (just the last two measures).

- there are a couple collisions between symbols and notes - see m. 15-16, vln. 2, m. 60 vln. 1.

That's it. Congratulations ! I look forward to hearing the performance of this.

Hi Noah,

Congratulations on having your piece selected for the Opus concert.

I am now going to help you get the score cleaned up and ready for performance.

- First off, there is a collision between the 'allegro' marking and the metronome mark in bar 1.

-In m. 15 there is a breath mark in the violin 1 part, but not in the violin 2 part- you should have this in both parts so they both know to take time (if that is what you want- I think it's a good idea since the violin 2 is switching to arco).

-m. 29-32, vln. 2- there is a collision between the crescendo line and the other notes and markings.

- In measures 41-45 you might just use hairpin dynamics rather than lines since the crescendo and decrescendo are each only over the course of two measures.

- m. 55-57, vln. 1, you have halfnotes with staccato dots. If you want these short they should be written as quarters or eighths with staccatos.

-Final measure, vln. 2- crescendo to what dynamic level?

That's it for now. I'll check in tomorrow morning and offer more feedback if you've made a revision. This is really in good shape.

Congratulations!
