Band Update

The concert on Sunday went well. Very well. Better than I was expecting actually, given out shitty dress rehearsal last Monday.

We had lots of “school holidays” and some school closures which dramatically cut our rehearsal time this concert period. We even had to cut a piece from the program because there wasn’t enough time to prepare it.

Yet somehow, true to form, we pulled a rose-smelling concert out of our collective assholes. Go figure.

Because we lost our normal bass bone player for this concert (he is a snow bird), I filled in on the low part. And it was FUN!

Scheherazade was the best piece because it rocks for brass and especially trombone. We get to basically “release the kraken” at the big melodic hits– and man it sounded good yesterday. Great intonation and power!

The next best piece was movement V “Hobbits” from Johann De Meij’s “LOTR symphony”. We get to go monkeyballz loud at the end of that one, and bass bone gets this glorious pedal b-flat to crank out.

I actually felt sorry for the French Horns sitting in front of me.

So– all in all– not a bad way to spend the first afternoon of DST. Plus it was in the 40’s here!

    As a french horn player, I’m just happy to know the ‘bones feel some sympathy for us from time to time.
