April 15, 2008 at 5:52 AMIt is not often that I blog about Orchestra rehearsal. Many times it is the same old wood shedding we do from week to week. Tonight was a bit different. The theme to our concert this year is "Pirates!". You guessed it, piece after piece of pirate music.
One piece in particular has an Oboe cadenza. Tonight, our oboist was inspired. She had one of those rare musical moments when the music just flowed out of her. It shocked us all, our jaws dropping, including the conductor who almost did not queue the rest of us to start playing again. It was amazing!
We are all amatures, and after two weeks of rehearsal, we are still collectively trying to figure out our own parts. And here was someone who made the huge leap from figuring out the technicals to producing some truly inspired lyrical music at the spur of the moment.
She recieved a rather large applause from the orchestra.
..... Pirate Music :)
