    Well, looking at this weekend's program, I'm pretty gassed. I thought there might be others here who might like to share their next program, as well. I put this in general trumpet because... well, I just did. (I'm kind of punchy about now...)

    We are doing the following:
    Holst: Suite in F
    Reed: Alleuia! Laudamus Te
    Granger: The Power of Rome and the Christian Heart
    Saint-Saens: Finale from Symphony No. 3
    Prelude and Fugue from "Schwonda the Bagpiper" (Love that title!)

    We're doing it to benefit the organ at the college... a huge pipe organ that shakes your bones, so that's why all the organ stuff. It needs a few things done for upkeep and such.

    Share your programs... what is everyone else up to?

    Good idea.

    The brass quintet I play in (Classic Brass) is giving a concert in March. Here's our program.

    Die Meistersinger
    Die Bankelsangerlieder
    Maple Leaf Rag
    Little Brown Jug
    Procession of the Nobles
    When I'm 64
    Amparito Roca
    Second Suite in F
    Just a Closer Walk (Canadian brass version)
    Barnum & Bailey's Favorite
    Musik for the Royal Fireworks
    America the Beautiful
    Hallelujah Chorus
    The Lord Bless You and Keep You
    Amazing Grace (Canadian Brass version)

    I am so looking forward to this concert. Our group has been looking for more opportunities to play, and figured, why not just put on our own concert. So we are. I sent out an email to all my friends and family with our playlist attached and asked them to pick songs they'd like to hear if they came to the concert. So, most of those songs are requested, plus each member of the group picked a song too. Should be a great concert.

    If any of you are around Rochester, MN on March 19th let me know and I'll give you more details.

    Four ensembles at once in High School! That’s amazing to me. I played in band and jazz band when I was in high school and drum corps on the weekends. There were several years after I got out of school where I was playing in a brass band, college (evening) orchestra, brass quintet, wind ensemble, Mesa Symphony and taking private lessons. I literally had a playing commitment everyday of the week.

    Are you playing the big solo in the Copland?

    It really sounds like you have immersed yourself in music. I hope your concerts go well, and I hope that this focus will allow you to play your best for your upcoming auditions.

    Take care,

    I wish I was playing the solo, but unfortunatly, the solo was written for trumpet, and I play 2nd horn in the Symphony. The kid playing it is great though, it's in good hands.
