Hey all: I'm a comebacker as I've indicated in many posts. I thought I'd post this weblink I found when searching for the term Tacet. I did not have the benefit of continuing education so I never played my Trumpet past high school. I had no recollection of ever encountering this term prior to last Monday night. We were playing John Phillip Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever March preparing for an upcoming concert and the Conductor told all us Trumpets to mark a section of the music Tacet. Well we did... Next thing I know were reading through the piece and we get to that section. I come out guns a blazing as the music is marked and the conductor stops and asks me what I'm doing. Needless to say I was a bit embarrased having played an unauthorized section solo in a spot we just agreed to not play; Of course I was not aware that this is what I agreed to and no one in my section bothered to point that out to me. I think it was have a little fun with the "Yankee" day or something I'm not sure. Anyway great musical term reference site: http://www.music.vt.edu/musicdictionary/ Enjoy, those of us who need it anyway!
