|Ain't she a beauty|
I will be playing the tuba with the a group from the LGSO at a ball tomorrow night, this is the instrument I am most comfortable playing, it is my first love, and the one I have been playing longest. I first started on the tuba as a 12 year old I had already been singing for some time and had some piano lessons without ever really taking to the instrument. As soon as I heard and saw the tuba I knew that was my instrument, and I was right, and it still is.
I have already over spent this month so I will not be going out and buying anything just for this one performance, so I am a little split whether to wear some dress trouser, with a sparkly waist or culottes which will still allow me to "show a bit of leg". Bizarrely the waists of both of these options are a little on the large side so it may well be comfort that dictates the final decision.
Those of you have been reading attentively for some time will know that I am a little uncomfortable with the whole Halloween thing, I a certainly not in the habit of celebrating it, rather I will generally avoid anything to do with the celebrations. I agreed to play at this ball some time ago when it was just being trailed as a masked ball, I now find that it is being billed as a Halloween ball with guests encouraged to indulge in gruesome fancy dress, the orchestra have just been asked to wear all black so at least I am spared that, but I suspect that I may be a little uncomfortable with some of what may be going on. Still maybe it serves me right for not checking my calendar or asking the right questions.
