I attended rehearsal last night. And it went ok.
I’m a little sore today, but all in all it was like riding a bike. I was marching and playing small segments Of the show after about an hour. And just marching bigger chunks.
The good part was that everyone was very happy to see me. And very grateful for a veteran presence, because the horn line is so very young.
The music is decent and the overall flow of the show is nice. And there are LOTS of horn line breaks so endurance shouldn’t be an issue.
Also good is that another veteran returned last night and he’s a really good guy that I’ve enjoyed marching with in the past. So yay!
So, long story short– I’m probably gonna do this. Mainly for the challenge aspect. And also to get me out of a rut.
Part of what probably didn’t come across in the previous post is that I tend to get bored when I don’t have music in my life. Easily and quickly bored. And now that band and chorus are on hiatus…. Well, my evenings have quickly become “gym, dinner for one, hallmark channel, bed”. Oh, and lamenting the fact that I’m single and alone most of the time while bingeing on Little Debbie’s.
Not very pretty.
At least this way I’m useful. And getting exercise.
