A real Concert this Saturday

Friday, October 23, 2020

My orchestra will be playing a real in-person concert this Saturday. We will not be our normal full orchestra but will be playing chamber music instead. Our venue is normally a lovely concert hall but they have closed down because of covid. A Baptist church graciously has opened its doors for us and we are playing our next 2 concerts here. We are all so excited to make music together now.

I am playing in a woodwind quintet

the Mozart Flute Concerto number 1

and the Brahms Serenade number 1 for strings and winds.

But we also will have a percussion piece, several string pieces and brass pieces as well. It is supposed to be a long concert but we are not having an intermission at all. We will just play right through everything and change "sets" and rest in between.

Everyone is so happy to be playing again! emoticon

    Enjoy! Our school already canceled the fall concert that was supposed to be this coming Monday. I don't know if it's out of precaution or just because there are enough students out on quarantine because of Covid. My understanding is that at some point they will video record and post it online. Won't be the same.

    Beautiful. So good to be able to do this again, even with a smaller group. How gracious to share their church with you for the concert. Covid is certainly forcing us to create different memories. Years from now, it will stand out as the concerts you did in 2020 in a different venue with a smaller group. Hope you have a lovely evening..

    Music is such a beautiful way for us to know each other and accept each others value. No one cares if those producing the music are big, skinny, tall short, green , yellow , orange, black or white. All that we care about is how well our sounds blend together and share the energy we desire to create.

    Through music you are making a positive difference, as well as a contribution to making the world and each of our life's better. You are adding value to a troubled world and allowing ALL OF US to be equal with each other and jointly bringing a positive energy to our world.

    Bless you. We need so much more of this type of acceptance of each other.
