Lots of thoughts are running through my head, and I hope you can make sense of them all.
My night before the first audition has not gone well. To top the list of ridiculous things that have happened, my left wrist hurts. A lot. I think it’s from carrying the amazing contra around.
Remind me to never tell another school that I can play the contrabassoon (quite well, I’ve been told), or anyone for that matter. Let’s keep it between us.
My chair fell apart today. I spent 30 minutes of prime practice time trying to piece it back together. Basically, the seat fell off the rest of the chair. oy. Fixed that. Then I realized that I HATE my cadenza (see last post) for the Mozart, and that I am just going to use one out of a book.
Also, my high note reed, that played that high E with the most awesome sound ever….yeah…it looks like I am going to use my exit strategy on the Carter piece.
Now, I find out it’s supposed to snow tomorrow. AWESOME. This day just get’s better and better.
This is either going to be the greatest audition, or a complete disaster. Having to take the 10:00 am test is not helping matters at all.
On the bright side of all of this, it’s the first audition, and I will get it out of the way! Well, here goes nothing! Catch you on the flip side.
