    Ah, so that's what happened? Funny stuff. Say, are you doing Viva City this year? It's kind of a shame they won't let me because I can't fit orchestra/band into my schedule the rest of this year (well, i have to graduate). Oh well. Last year went well.

    Thanks for posting that video link;
    On the same page was a link to:

    Video Leonard Bernstein - Journey into Jazz - Leonard, Bernstein, NY, Philharmonic, Schuller - Dailymotion Share Your Videos

    Gunther Schuller conducting NY Phil in "Journey Into Jazz"
    with Bernstein narrator. Features "Don Ellis" on trumpet.
    I'd never heard of this piece. It's sort of a take off on
    Prokofiev's "Peter & the Wolf".

    Priceless.

    Yeah, those guys deserve it -- they never pay attention :lol:

    My intermediate school BD used a screwdriver to conduct a few times...Once, it went sailing out of his hand and narrowly missed a horn player.

    Thanks for sharing that Bernstein clip. I just loved his smile that he flashed soon after dispatching his baton into the second violins. That was so classic.

    Saturday night I attended the symphony here in Colorado Springs.

    On the last note of the first piece (a Cherubini overture), the conductor got so excited with the cut-off that he knocked his stand over and nearly took out the principal viola :lol:

    I am fairly certain that Cherubini did not write in a "stand crash" at the end of his score for percussive effect :D
