Just had a most amazing day! Regular readers will know my journey with the French Horn, and especially how nervous I am playing in public... and those who read my last post will know that it was difficult for me to be the only French Horn in the band.
Well, folks, today there has been progress! Lots of it!
This morning, I was (again) the only French Horn in band, and I wasn't even nervous. I can't believe it! All thanks to the lovely conductor from 2 weeks ago, whose words put me at ease. Different conductor today, who at times focused on me, and I was fine with that. I'm learning, learning so much!(forsyths.co.uk)
This afternoon, I was playing with an orchestra, who rehearse just once a month. At the break, the conductor told me she thought the French Horns were sounding really good today!
After the break, we were rehearsing Christmas Carols with a choir, cos guess what? on Saturday, we're recording a CD with the choir! All the usual suspects will be on it..Oh Little Town of Bethlehem, O Come all you Faithful, Silent Night etc.
We had such a good time today, well, I certainly did! The guy beside me probably thinks I'm a lunatic, cos each time a new piece of music was called I'd go "oh, I love this one!"...
But really, I adore Christmas music. I was totally happy, playing away, choir singing behind us; it was bliss!
I'm really hoping that the CD will be for sale, I will buy a copy for everyone I know, and I'll be putting a video clip on here, I promise I will!
