    Congrats!

    I'm going to be playing bye bye birdie next fall and so I've listened to it a few times. Best way to describe it is schmaltzy big band, with a several D's, a couple E's, optional F, and some shakes, but overall not too bad. I've heard that there's one song that has you playing some form of minor scales without rest for a page and a half, up to a high D, but the song isn't on the recording I have.

    Sounds like a fun book to play, although I have no experience with musicals to put it in perspective.

    I'm only playing second, though. They've had the same woman playing lead for the past several years, so the actual audition was just for the second book :(

    You're right. Karl is awesome. I study with him and there are some days my ears hurt from the amount of volume he puts out.

    Congrats,

    I spent a year at Shenandoah in the 60's (ah that would be 65-66 school year). Things have changed considerably since that time.
