Since I’ve been doing the community band thing this year it turns out this next week I have four concerts.
This Saturday (December 1st) 10:30am-12:00pm – I will be playing at Exchange Park in Vermilion, OH with the Vermilion Community Band.
Next Tuesday I’ll be performing with the Ashland Community Band at the Ashland Univ at University Campus at 7:30 PM – it is a joint concert with the Ashland University Jazz Orchestra.
Next Thursday I’ll be performing with the Vermilion Community Band again at the Inn at Chapel Park at 7:30 PM.
Finally next Saturday I’ll be finishing the winter concert season with a performance again with the Vermilion Community Band for a Concert at Midway Mall in Elyria, OH. The concert starts at 7:00 PM.
I’ll be playing third trumpet in all the concerts. This is no longer high school so it’s not anything derogatory anymore. I really have no interest in playing first part in any of these bands. I can say getting back into playing my tone and tonguing have greatly improved. Probably better than when I was playing in high school or college.
I’m certain I’ll be sticking with this going forward since I had forgotten how important music is to my life.
December 1st’s concert is recorded here.
