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
Best of Queen
Best od Frank Sinatra
Theme from Out of Africa
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.
