Hi

Nothing important to say - but I am going to say something anyway!!

One of the bands I am a member of had a concert last night - and I don't know whether the conductor had been at the coffee before we started, or had a hot date waiting for him - but I have never played some of those pieces so fast - ever.

It is a "Concert Band" and we play a selection of 16 pieces of music - Last night including

Pirates of the Caribean
Phanton of the Opera
Les Miserables
Jerusalem
Best of Queen
Best od Frank Sinatra
Theme from Out of Africa
   etc
and finishing with "Sunset" - Which is The Day Thou Gavest Lord is Ended and The Last Post ... a traditional army combination..

This band has quite a few ex-military personel (including the conductor who was in The Scot's Guards).

Still we had a reasonable audience - who seemed to enjoy it, so that was the main thing!  My main worry was that I would fall down the grating - as our concert was in a Church and the chair legs were smaller than the holes in the gratiing!

Oh well - lazy-ish day today.

Tomorrow = Bank Holiday.  No plans, but I have an orchestra rehearsal in the evening (yes - I know ... madness!!)

Hope you are all having a good weekend.
