Today I finally played my string bass as part of the worship team. I stuck to pretty simple songs but, hey, I did it!
Tonight was a much more demanding debut. It was our year end concert for the Prince Albert Strings. I got totally lost on one song – it is one with all sorts of repeats and I do fine when practicing but tend to get lost as the music moves faster. I was surprised on a couple of the pieces where I played well all the way through.
Next weekend we play a couple of songs to open with the Saskatoon symphony. How audacious of me even daring to get up there with such good players! So I am hoping they are gracious and don’t make some comment about the lack of quality of the playing.
I think it will be fun.
And then orchestra will be over till next year. I am thinking that next year will be a bit easier.
