Your sonatina should be memorized by the week of decision, so that we can know confidently whether to forward or not. That gives us a couple of weeks to add the final touches needed for a fine performance.

There are two opportunities listed below to play your pieces in public before the festival. I highly recommend that you take advantage of both. If you need to miss one, you can schedule something on your own as a substitute. If you need to miss both, we need to work out a separate opportunity.
