Thoughts while sitting in a band dress rehearsal:

Many years ago I used to be in the percussion section. Now I have the opportunity to listen in on rehearsals. Today is a dress rehearsal and composer is in the auditorium... Hahaha

    Ummm the composer is in the audience. Get your head out of the stands and watch and listen.
  2. β€’
    Please be on time for your call time.
  3. β€’
    Yeah, let's go, percussion section!
  4. β€’
    Yeah, cut those dynamics in half so the harpist can have chance to be heard.
  5. β€’
    Good job, flutes. Someone practiced and stepped it up.
  6. β€’
    Why can't our brass section sound like this all the time? Ringers.

    I'm about to throw something at some of he percussion sectionβ€”two measures is enough time to grab that mallet and cover the chime part.

    That was a crazy-awesome story from the guest artist. Gives perspective on how legit and on your game you must be to make it.
