Skipping Across a Pond


Band Things

Posted by Nara , in Music, School Dec 18 2013 · 334 views

As in, concert band. =P

My concert band was invited to play at the Midwest Clinic, an international conference for band/orchestra. A professor from Cornell University will be conducting our rehearsal as an opportunity to show new methods of teaching to band directors and showing off how to use iPads and Google Glass during rehearsals.

She came in during school today to meet us beforehand, and she's hilarious. =P Google Glass doesn't look as silly as I imagined it, it's actually really awesome and I kinda want it now.

Oh, and one of the songs we're playing during the rehearsal is from Frank Ticheli, one of the most well known concert band composers. Plus, one of my favorite composers. Apparently he's supposed to be there and may be watching us play one of his songs. Excited and nervous as the same time. D=D


Band Concert

I have a solo this time. I'm really nervous, since it's literally a solo for about 10 seconds. Afterwards, accompanied by a clarinet.

Just me playing, nothing else.
And ten seconds is a long time in band-world.

But excited nonetheless! ^-^

Because I can't think of a better title. Plus I think this entry will cover a range of things.

Firstly, if you haven't already heard it, Si Tu Vois Ma Mère is a great song. It's a jazz song mostly featuring a sax duet. I personally love it because I play alto sax (though I think it's a soprano in the song), so it might not be everyone's cup of tea.

Secondly, first day of Pep Band was today. There were more saxes than I anticipated and one of them had a blue and gold saxophone. Not to say that that is the best sounding model, but it's blue and gold. How can you not love it?

So lightning has a prefix now, Vo, huh? I like it a lot, actually. It'll be useful for my [hopefully] upcoming epic. Now we just need prefixes for the other elements that don't have them. =P

I'm also getting a plethora of college letters since I've taken a practice ACT. Asking around, it turns out that my friends have either stopped getting them a while ago or never got one. I'm not sure how to feel about this. They're clogging my desk drawer.

I also planned out the rest of highschool when I had some free time and it looks like I'll be filled to the brim with AP classes senior year. Next year, I think I plan on taking.. 2 AP classes, Chem and US History. But senior year, all my classes bar band/lunch/PE and an empty one I am filling with a study hall, all my classes are AP classes. I understand why schools want a mandatory PE class, but I could really use another study hall or fill it with another class.

High school is too short.
