Back in the Saddle Again
Orchestra rehearsals resumed last Thursday after spring break. There's sheet music strewn all over my dining room, and I'm loving it. We got the playlist for the next concert and copies of all the music.
The good news: Most of the pieces are within my reach this time.
The bad news: "The Glow Worm" is back on the agenda.
In the midst of my music meltdown 2 weeks prior to the spring concert I'd neglected to mention that "Glow Worm" had been removed from our spring concert repertoire following our "eh" rehearsal, (see Practicing ... NOT!!!! Ranting ... yes.), but S had said that we'd get back to it for the next concert, as well as recycle a few others that we'd just played.
So I've been practicing diligently since the spring concert and have considerably upped my daily practice sessions over the past 2 weeks. During this time I've made scales and lesson material as much of a priority as orchestra music, and I intend to keep the momentum going.
Our next concert is outdoors (weather permitting) has a patriotic theme, and will be held on July 3, just 4 days before my daughter's wedding.
