I just wanted to give a small update about what I'm up to right now at school.
A week from Tuesday, I'll be performing in a master class put on by members of the American Brass Quintet. That's 2:00pm on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. I'll be performing Morceau Symphonique on trombone.
Last night, I performed for the first time on campus with the CC jazz combo. After a short rehearsal on Tuesday evening, I felt prepared enough to join them for their 9:00pm concert on Friday night for parents' weekend, on piano (throwing in trombone and trumpet as necessary!)
I'm currently in 7 adjunct classes, despite there being a limit of 3 per semester:
- Voice lessons
- Trombone lessons
- Conducting class
- Concert Band (euphonium; also stage manager)
- Orchestra (trumpet, trombone)
- Tiger Jazz (bass trombone)
- Chamber Choir (bass I)
In addition, I'm participating in:
- Opera Scenes
A performance of several scenes from Not Since Nineveh, Finishing School, Gypsy Baron, and The Bartered Bride Costumed, staged, with props, and my first experience with opera
- CC Jazz Combo
Very laid-back, playing original songs that the members have written as well as reading from the real book.
I'd say I'm getting some mileage in on music.
I did not win the CCSGA election and managed to scoop up only 18 votes (less than 4% of the vote) but I think I probably have enough going on as it is.
I'll post about more upcoming performances as they come closer. For now, wish me luck!
