By Number

This numerical system is a way of organizing our music more efficiently in rehearsals and performances.  This is not meant to be a definitive canon, just a list of pieces we might see in rehearsal.  Each piece is assigned a number which can be called using one hand (hence the avoidance of digits larger than five).  Players should pencil these numbers onto their parts for reference.  As our repertoire changes in the future, some numbers may be reassigned.
