The Russians!

We hand our fall concert band concert this past Sunday– and it went really really well. Like, it surpassed my expectations and parts of it made me think “damn, now that sounded almost professional!”

As you probably gleaned from the title, it was an entire concert of Russian composers: Tchaikovsky, Rimsey-Korsakov, Shostakovich, Rachmaninov, Mussorgsky, etc. Pieces featured were Festive Overture, dance of the Tumblers, Russian Sailor Dance, Night on Bald Mountain, Folk Dances, Waltz no. 2 and others.

Festive Overture had the potential to be a real mess (especially given the tempo the conductor wanted to take), but it held together nicely and sounded good.

As a whole, I was quite happy with how it turned out. But I’m even more happy that I get a break now until the beginning of next year. I need it with the chorus holiday concerts coming up.

Oh, and here’s a pre-concert selfie I took:

I clean up decently, I guess.
