    Well thank you all for your words of wisdom. We're on dinner break right now but I'd say everyone 'broken in' fairly well and we have the potential for a great year ahead of us.
    Today we started off with just breathing, and then moved into long tones and eventually our intro, which thankfully is very slow.

    And Vulgano: If you could see the flute section. *whistles*

    I enjoyed marching band in high school. We had very long bus trips to support the football team and it was a fringe benefit to neck with girls all the way to and all the way back from the games. We played well as far as music went but it was a social and dating extravaganza. Some band people married and remain so to this day. That was almost 50 years ago.
