May 17, 2013 at 11:20 AMTomorrow is Fine Arts, where we'll be playing a couple strings-only pieces from Pops with Symphonic Orchestra. We'll also be playing a few pieces with 7th graders. Sunday is the Orchestra Awards Banquet, Monday is Pops Dress Rehearsal from 2:30pm-5pm, and Tuesday is the Pops Concert! I probably mentioned a schedule like this last year. Well, it's the exact same thing. So those are my two concerts! Maybe I'll see if I have time to do a reflection Tuesday night...
For the past week, I haven't really been able to practice much because I've been trying to finish my Music Theory Vivaldi project. (I hope to practice Pops stuff for at least an hour tonight or this afternoon.) And it's finished! I'm not really sure I can upload the video to YouTube, because I think it's too long or something... We will be presenting those today, Monday, and Tuesday before the seniors leave. :( I'm so glad to be finished with that, although it's been a lot of fun to research Vivaldi and analyze his piece, "Winter".
Finally, I've also been working (on the side) on a screenplay for the summer movie. More of my friends want to help out, so it's going to be pretty interesting come mid-June/July when we get it filmed. That may go on YouTube, but I'll figure that out and discuss it when it gets closer to the film being done. I've actually, with just the script, been able to begin some scores for the film (although I'm going to finish the script first and have my friends 'heavily' edit it); I have begun to create character themes, which I plan to somehow merge various ones when they are needed in the film. I'll have to wait and see how the film plays out, because there isn't a lot you can do pre-production with music. I can at least get ideas out, and when it comes time to insert the music into the movie, I can clip stuff and mess around with it.
So yeah! That's why I haven't been able to really post much in the last few days - busy with all this work. After Pops, it's just finals, then summer! I'm busy over the summer, but hopefully it won't be too bad, I can relax with friends with a summer film, I can practice composing (and my instruments!), and I can get everything I need to done. Thanks for reading!
