|Not the last time you'll see Betty|
Though one dress problem I see I had in January I have again in December, and that's with my Jazz/Blues band. later this month we will be playing at the Christmas Party of our local Hospice. We have agreed that the instrumentalists in the band will all wear black bottoms and single colour bright tops, this takes me out of my security zone of all black, and I will actually have to think about it. I do feel that the environment of the band should allow me to be a little bit more flamboyant than in an orchestra though.
This month I have other concerns about the concerts I'm involved with. In a couple of weeks I have an orchestra concert where I have two solos, and at the moment I can't play one of them, and then a band concert where we will be playing a suite I arranged specially for Christmas. This is going to a BIG DEAL for me, since it will be the first time another Conductor has chosen to play one of my arrangements, I will admit to feeling a bit nervous!
