On stage at the CSO

This afternoon was the orchestra rehearsal for this weekend’s tribute concert. To sing on that stage and hear my own voice fill the hall, even if only briefly, is an awe inspiring thing. I know many of my friends have and will sing on that stage in the future, and sing in many stages like it around the world, but just to have a taste is a filling meal for me.

Then, to top it off, we stand behind the brass for Verdi’s Te Deum (the last of the “Four Scared Pieces”) and Bruckner’s Psalm 150. So, the frustrated trombonist in me gets to stand four feet from arguably the best tuba, bass trombone, and trumpet player in the world (not to forget the entire section as a whole as well.)
