This summer I'm playing the Music Man with a great pit orchestra. I'm playing 3rd and the other 2 trumpet players are from the Eugene Symphony and have studied with both. I have played professionally before but not with this many players of this caliber. The main problem I'm having is that I'm not playing out enough. The cause of this is that I don't want to stick out or hurt the balance of this group. I couldn't think of a more supportive trumpet section to play with. They did suggest that I play a little louder. My question is, have any of you out there experienced being a little intimidated playing with seasonned pros for the first time and how did you overcome it? Let me reinterate that is nothing that the other players are doing, it is completely me and wanting to do a good job.
