Updates on music and electricity

We finally got the power restored to the back 1/2 of the house this morning, thanks to Chuck's detective work. Turns out there was a wire burned off inside an outlet we never use. But all is better now.


Last night we of the Gig Harbor Peninsula Symphony Orchestra read through the music for our May concert. Of the three we read, there are finally some significant trumpet parts in two of them - the Haydn 104 (London) and the Schubert Overture in D in the Italian style. Still mostly punch chords and brief fanfares, but a whole lot more than the 25 notes we played in the last concert.

Maestro Labayen recently informed us we'll be doing a combined concert with the Peninsula High School band in May as well, performing, among other things, Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance, and "Nimrod" from the Enigma Variations. It appears the year will conclude with a much larger bang than it started, at least so far as my playing is concerned.
