Below is a list of the beat pattern changes for the Toccata and Fugue. Please write these into your parts before this Sunday’s (October 21st) rehearsal. You will also receive this list by email. You may wish to print out a copy and bring it to rehearsal. Thank you! This will save us a great deal of time in rehearsal. You will also be receiving a pdf of the full score to this piece later this week via email. I highly recommend following along with the score to the recording. We will talk in rehearsal about how this can help in your preparation and markings that you can make in your own parts such as cues of other instruments.
