Manny- Our next wind ensemble concert is going to consist of all dance music. Not really sure of specific works yet; but I want to prepare myself a little before the music arrives. Since it's dance, I'm certain it will be much lighter than our usual fare. What can I practice to lighten my style a little so I don't sound like a grizzly in a tu-tu? Do you modify your articulation syllable when you have to play lighter music?
