    Thought I'd throw a couple "atmosphere" pics on here from rehearsals this week. The first
    (Monday night) was a rehearsal for a performance of Hodie, a 16 movement cantata by Ralph Vaughan Williams, featuring a full orchestra, large choir, childrens' choir, and soloists. We are also performing Personent Hodie (Festival Processional). The processional features some really nice trumpet quartet and percussion parts. Here's a link to a performance of it by another group:

    The second pic is from Tuesday night, and is a brass band dress rehearsal for our Veterans' Day concert. The concert is on Sunday. Tonight (Wednesday), I have a dress rehearsal for the Hodie, and Thursday night is the performance. Back in the saddle again - four nights in a row, 2 down and 2 to go...wish me luck! ;-)

    Interesting pics, Dale. What mp is that on your cornet ? It appears to have a thin outer rim, similar to the Stork Vacchiano I am currently using on my trumpets.

    It's a Bach 3 (no letter). I switched to my Curry 3BBC. shortly after taking the picture, though. It seemed to blend with the section better in that space.

    Well, that 8 hour, 4 night playing stint is over. I must be getting old...I'm worn out. A brass band concert on Veterans' Day and then it's on to the Christmas music.

    I find it inspiring. It also satisfies my interest in horns.
    Here’s a pic from a rehearsal of Matilda. (Not me— I don’t play at that level)

    Here's a pic from a performance a year or two ago. I don't take many pics from the stage, and save even fewer of them.

    Here's one from a brass band rehearsal.
