So many threads out there - about horns, about all kinds of equipment, about what you've been listening... but no one is interested what we've been playing! So I'm starting this thread:
For me, it's my new trumpet ensemble (starting with a few amateur friends, and intended to be a trumpets-only group of eventually 10-12 players, with F trumpets for tenors and Bb bass trumpets... doing festive music. It's called KObrasss (yes, the spelling's correct, KO standing for the town of Korneuburg/Austria where we are based, and brasss - six letters standing for the six founder members, and the three s for the hissing of the cobra, which is our logo - look at Facebook and see us there!
And only yesterday I finished a run of fourteen performances of "The Man from La Mancha" - great stuff! Nice fanfare stuff, and enough breaks to sneak a drink in between... only had one mishap, right at the beginning, when Don Quixote attacks the windmills... his equipment arrives on stage without him, being thrown from the side; his helmet flew a bit too far and hit the timps in the pit with an almighty bang. Could have been me, sitting right next to the kettles...
Now what are your recent experiences? I want to hear all about them!
