Swing Version of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Yeah. Pretty fucking amazing.

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.
Four gigs/concerts tomorrow!! Here we go!
The opening concert
Västerås All Star Jazz Orchestra
Loads of participators!
Balloon rain! :D
Yay! My performance from the final concert! :D
The video quality isn’t the best and the tuning and intonation seemed to lack a bit (lot). But I was so happy and had so much fun performing this!! That totally makes up for that! ;D
Me and Matilda playing :)

Welcome on We Heart It. http://weheartit.com/entry/6382380
There’s only music on my schedule today! :D Choir, jazz ensamble, classic ensemble and Symphonic Band. Awesome!<3
It’s something special about…
Instead of having an ordinary music history lesson this afternoon we got to hear Monica & Carl-Axel Dominique play a little concert for us :) They performed some four-hands jazz, a classic music tale, an abstract piece and Rapsody no. 2 (I think) by Franz Liszt and some other nice pieces. I was really amazed by their skills and the music they played, most interesting was the “abstract” piece and Liszt’s Rapsody was the best, saved for last!
These happenings are just some of what I really love about my school and my teachers; all the opportunities they give us to express ourselves and make personal progress in music, all the inspiration they give us and the concerts we get to hear… I don’t think I could be more thankful for anything right now! :D I made a really good choice in ninth grade. And now graduation is less than a year away… OMG
