Anybody's band going to the Macy's Day Parade 2009? My band is 1 of 11, just wondering who else will be there.
Here's our audition vid, if anyone wants to see it. I suggest skipping to about 7 minutes, but the whole thing is pretty sweet (although a little off because of bad recording/YouTube...)
hey. i'm new but i've been lurking for a while now. there should be more posting though because this community is so awesome :]
i play clarinet and i'm trying out for my state's senior district concert thing. does anyone have any idea where i can listen to or get von weber's concerto #1, 1st and 2nd movements in D for Bb clarinet? yeahhhh...
anyway, this is my school's band. we're doing a latin show this year and the video is from a competition we just did on sunday. we suck but we're big. 150 members, yo.
I'm researching graduate programs in performance and was looking for some suggestions of professors you might know/like and the schools they teach at. I also wouldn't mind if any of you know some piccolo enthusiasts... I'd love to study with someone that loves picc as much as me. =]
Let me know. =]
I'm new here, Percussionist (mainly mallets, vibe for marching season) and a big band geek too. Can't wait, I have competion in 2 days, YAY!! That's all I had to say.
Hey just saying hi
and have you started band camp?
How is it?
Marching Season is coming up for everybody in High School and Coleege Marching Bands.
Who's ready for Band Camp, Football Games, and Competitions? ^_^
Greetings. I be a Choctawhatchee Style Marcher.
I'm a freshmen [unfortunately] and I'm in Concert [second] Band. [all band classes are in marching band]
I play Bassoon
I march Euphonium
I can play basic Piano, though I used to be considered a prodigy.
I have, in the past several years, lost my superior piano skills, and have had to start, more or less, from the beginning.
[Contrary to popular belief, it is not like riding a bike]
I capitalize instrument names, and drive my English teachers nuts.
I have tried out for all-county once, and made it once.
I have played 2 solos at S&E and gotten 2 Superiors.
I have marched one marching show entitled 'Ave Ave Ave'
I have marched said show at the Florida Band Fest: Straight distinguished
I have marched said show at the Florida Tournament of Champions: 1st place
I have marched said show at Super Regional BOA: Atlanta: 11th place
I have marched said show at the Florida Marching Band Championship: 1st place, new record, 3/4 captions.
I have many many many hilarious band moments stored in my head, that I desperately wish I had on camera.
I have 2 band directors [one of which is gay <3]
I have 2 percussion teachers [neither of which I know very well]
I have 1 color guard coach [apparently she's very very mean]
I have 1 private tutor [who knows less than me. It's not that I'm just that good, It's only that he's just that bad]
I have and aunt and an uncle who are both band directors in Houston [one is retired] If you know a Robert or Nancy Caston, I secretly love you.
I only lord our band's accomplishment over the football players because they've never won shit, and still think they're better than us. [they've won 4 games out of the whole season. which is 2 more than they won last year]
I wish I could stay in high school forever and ever. [and ever and ever and ever]
Hiyas, my name is Chelsea, and I play the trumpet. =D I kinda know how to play the piano... but not really =/ it's more of a I play around on the piano... but chords just don't happen fer me. Chords actually still kind of confuse me... Anyway. I've been playing trumpet for 5 years. I'm in the Marching and symphonic band at my high school.
...Has anyone ever played "Variations of a Korean Folk Song"? 'cause... apparently it's a really popular piece... so yeah... just wondering. Bye =D
