One of the wind ensembles I play in is an audition group in Jacksonville, Fl, a very good group ([URL="http://www.fcwe.org"] and one I enjoy playing in. The other group is a come-one-come-all community band group. This is the group I have taken a hiatus from for now. I am hopeful to get more gigs with a local chamber group. It is an audition group as well but I did get a gig with them last year as they needed a 3rd trumpet. The other orchestra I play in is a new group for me that travels all over Florida throughout the year with a 400 piece choir. It is a play by invitation group. We play at church conventions, etc. This is a very fine group, one I am doing well to hold my own in right now but I really enjoy it as well. I sub periodically with a semi-professional quintet that offers a whole unique set of challenges. I have been asked to play lead in an area jazz ensemble too but have way too much on my plate as it is. And dare I say on this forum that I don't like playing jazz all that much. I knew I wouldn't be happy doing that so I refused that invitation.
