A question for all sort of instrument players out there!
If you aren’t going to any sort of band/orchestra camp and do not have another sort of ensemble or duo-partner to play with during summer vacation
What do you play
and how do you motivate yourself?
The first three gigs and concerts yesterday went really good :) We got our band-jackets so we had them on morning gig with Symphonic Band at the harbour, where we played for the tourists on a visiting sailing cruiser. A really enthusiastic audience :D After we were finished the captain came out and played Amazing Grace on bagpipes for us! That was sooo cool!!
Then I played two concerts with the classical ensemble in school and in town. I just had a small slip in one piece when I was listening to the cellis’ more than concentrating on the notes so I missed to come in right at the start of a new phrase x) But they play so beautiful.
When I checked my phone after the concert in town I had four missed calls and a message that told me that the jazz-ensemble had already started the last gig without me. So I had to leave in a hurry and run all the way there. I got really upset and irritated about this. It was not supposed to have collided on the schedule if they hadn’t moved place! :( So when I came into the hall with aching legs out of breath and sweating like an idiot they have to give me all the attention and applaud me. FUCKING EMBARRASSING. And afterwards someone just had to comment to me that ”Gosh you were veeery late!” YEA. NO SHIT SHERLOCK.
I would probably have felt better if I just hadn’t care to turn up. They knew that I had a concert with the classical ensemble in town.
Appreciation-level is down in the bottom now.
