I DID IT! 8D

Post by BlitheBassoon » Thu May 27, 2010 2:07 am

HOLY MOLY! I GOT INTO THE YOUTH SYMPHONY IN THE CITY I'M MOVING TO THIS SUMMERRRR.
Haha, I was afraid I wouldn't make it because it's a big city and I couldn't even go in person to audition like you are supposed to -_-' But I made the top symphony, second chair of two bassoons =] I AM EXCITED!

Hah, just thought I'd throw that out there <3

Whoohoo! That sounds wonderful!

Wish I played an instrument. I'm self taught to guitar and piano... but it's not the same. I'd like to learn how to play bluegrass fiddle -- how's that for an odd aspiration? ;)
Zib, go suffer for your art.

Wait. 20 and 20 and 20 is not 50!

Wow!! Great job! I wish we had a larger symphony here, it's just for a junior college and there's only four 1st violins.
I'm a colorist for "Wolf" cuz it's sooooo much FUN!!!!

Thanks guys =]

Haha, Uzuri, I've never met anyone who wanted to play bluegrass fiddle, but hey, sounds neat =D Very unique, you should go for it =D

And wow, SilverLuna, that is small! I can't imagine what it must be like to play in such a small symphony!

Aww, I'm sure it's not as bad as you think it is =) But I understand about needing brass- my old band had PLENTY brass players... but none that actually play brass properly. >.<

Congratulations, Blithe! My youth symphony days are way behind me. I moved on to play bluegrass fiddle instead. *pokes Uz* Of course, I'm no longer in Kansas, but haven't figured out just what to play in Portland yet.

Congratulations from someone who has been there! I loved playing in youth symphony; it was really a chance to play more challenging music than what we did in high school orchestra. I hope your experience is awesome.

By thy side,

Figaro
