Guesting with the Northshore Youth Symphony Orchestra

December 8, 2008

Many thanks to Mrs. Larson, Mr. Dolan, and Mr. Pavasaris for inviting me to play in NYSO! It was a lot of fun! We played:

  • Old Churches by Michael Colgrass
  • Galloping Ghosts by William Ryden
  • Canticle of the Creatures by Jim Curnow

They were all great pieces, very fun to play, and everything went smoothly, except that I had the wrong piece on my stand when we started, giving me 8 measures of cut time to find it, which I did, but it unnerved me a bit. (Is that a run-on sentence? Oops) THAT won’t happen again!
