A real Concert this Saturday
Friday, October 23, 2020
My orchestra will be playing a real in-person concert this Saturday. We will not be our normal full orchestra but will be playing chamber music instead. Our venue is normally a lovely concert hall but they have closed down because of covid. A Baptist church graciously has opened its doors for us and we are playing our next 2 concerts here. We are all so excited to make music together now.
I am playing in a woodwind quintet
the Mozart Flute Concerto number 1
and the Brahms Serenade number 1 for strings and winds.
But we also will have a percussion piece, several string pieces and brass pieces as well. It is supposed to be a long concert but we are not having an intermission at all. We will just play right through everything and change "sets" and rest in between.
Everyone is so happy to be playing again!
