New Symphony in C# Minor!

April 26, 2013 at 10:41 AM

Two days ago, at 1pm, I went outside and walked to a lake. Essentially, it's a lake with a trail around it. I found a picnic table, grabbedy blank sheet music, and set to work. I was writing (or beginning) another symphony, for different instruments (just slightly), and a different key. I call it "The Mourning Dove." It's quite interesting what working outside does for you. Birds chirping, people walking yipping dogs. It feels so wonderful to work on music outside in the fresh air. When this movement of my symphony is done (probably very end of May, as I am turning it in as my final composition for Music Theory), I'll put it on YouTube and send a link.

Also, in just two days from now is the first five-hour rehearsal for Fox Valley! About 100 musicians, and my first time playing in a 'legit' full orchestra. I'm so excited! Should I wear earplugs? I'm second violin and may sit close to the brass! Depending on where I sit... :)
