Dear Jasmin,
Thanks for taking care of the little things I mentioned to you in my notes. I've made a couple of small adjustments but haven't changed the music, just added a bass clef to the piano (though it doesn't play anything, it's easier for the player to read with two staff lines, believe it or not). I have made .pdf files of the score and parts and they're now off to the players. One thing that you'll need to decide before the rehearsal is whether you really want the cello and piano to play f all the way through. That's what you have now for those two parts, even though the violin and viola use different dynamics in different places. So think about that, and come prepared to talk with the players about this (they're really nice, so they'll work with you). Anyway, please let me know if you have questions and congratulations on your fine piece. I'll let you all know once I know more about the schedule for next month.

Best wishes,

Dear Jasmin,
The comment I wrote you late in the summer that contained edits you needed to make before I can print your score got deleted when our new site had some work done on it. So what I've done is put a .pdf file of your piece up on Google Docs and given you a link that you and your father ought to get via email. In the file I've written comments in red right in the music. Please look this .pdf over and make the changes I'm suggesting. They don't change the music itself, they just make the notation correct so the players can read it properly. Once you have made the changes, you'll need to print the individual parts and send them to me via email or you can put them up on Google Drive and send me a link. (I'm sure your father can help you with either of these.) I can print the score, but not the parts, so I need you to do that. This needs to be done fairly soon so I can print the parts and send them off to the musicians for our January 12 concert. Please let me know if you have questions.

Best wishes,
