I got home a little while ago from playing a concert that went really well. I play principal trumpet with a Union band and we did a pops concert tonight. We played in an old auditorium am guessing that it was state of the art in about 1930. There were huge crown moldings with dental and chandeliers for lights. The hall was a little run down but the sound was great. I was really relaxed playing. I didn't have to push all night. I Could hear my sound bouncing back from the back of the hall. The conductor never asked for more and I never had to push. It was just a great experience all around.
