Orchestra Pops Reflection

May 23, 2012 at 2:07 AM

Well. Today was certainly a big day - or should I say night; it's the Orchestra Pops Concert! I think we did a pretty good job as a general whole. I screwed up in a couple spots, but since I sit in the very back of the first violin section, it was hardly noticeable. I was sitting in an odd spot - it's towards the middle of the orchestra's curve in the back, by the bass section. We had the 180 string players forming the arch, and behind that, by the cartoon projectors, were the wind symphony with flutes and clarinets and percussion for the full orchestra pieces. It was so cool seeing everything come together, and I think we did a pretty good job! Well, it was hard for me to see the music, because, though we had a stand light, our stand was a dud, as it kept falling even though Dominique kept trying to keep it up... it failed. Oh, well. It all worked out!

Now it's only to wait until next year! And the Prism concert in December 2012! This Pops Concert, though, was a fantastic way to end the school year as a lead-in to the summer.
