Playing well. Reeds get better the less I mess with them. Who knew? Lots and lots of rehearsals and gigs. Played a very tiny and lovely wedding over the weekend with my trio, have another gig this weekend, will be playing Mozart’s Requiem with some group or other in a couple of weeks, and the chamber orchestra has a concert coming up. March is an ugly, ugly month on my calendar.
Chamber orchestra rehearsals start up soon and I’m excited for the concert. It’s been a few months and I’m anxious to play in an orchestra I enjoy again. It took some time but it seems my name is finally out there with some of the right folks and I’m finally getting more freelance gigs. It’s a good time for it – need the money, have the time, and I feel like I’m playing better than I had been for a while. What’s more, I’m enjoying bassoon right now and that really does make all the difference.
