Weekly Roundup 3/24/15

Reading: Still on a break from studying so I can focus on some arranging projects.

(Arranging: Songs for The Satellites; Da Pacem Domine by Arvo Part for Metro Brass)

Practicing: Red Dragonfly, and Arthur Pryor’s Annie Laurie which I may perform with Metro Brass in the future.

Rehearsing: Metro met on Sunday night for some quality rehearsal time. We are preparing a June 4th concert at Grace Lutheran in St Paul. More details soon! Lots of showcase pieces for members of this talented group.

Performing: Nothing on the calendar until Easter weekend.

Listening: Black Messiah by D’Angelo spinning nearly constantly. How is possible for human beings to lay back on a beat so hard? It’s mind-boggling.

Teaching: Blending and intonation. Using an exercise I learned from Tom Ashworth at the U, tuning unisons and various intervals with a partner.

Relaxing: Thursday evening I’m leaving for a long weekend in Chicago! I will see good friends Gabe, Matt, Becka, Candace, and Owen. I have tickets to see the Decembrists and the Vijay Iyer Trio!

No weekly roundup next week! Enjoy your spring break! (TAKE YOUR HORN HOME)
