Went out to Livingston, NJ to work with Mike Jedwabnik and the Livingston HS Wind Symphony on Dusk tonight. Their concert is next Wednesday, the 25th, and I’ll be conducing Dusk with them – looking forward to it! Tonight was a little rough because we were missing several players (started rehearsal without a trombone section…), but they have a lot of talent and are going to pull of a great concert!
Here’s the band pretending to play Dusk (I’d forgotten to get a picture while I was conducting with them, so I made them ‘pose’ for me – don’t tell anyone).
My apologies to the trumpet section for giving you so many rests – just saving you up for the big moments. And yes, I really do own a gorilla mask. That’s a picture of it in the upper-left corner of the website… 🙂
See you all next Wednesday!
