After nine months of planning, applications, bookings and practice, we finally met to play some music! Last week was all about rehearsals with five days of intensive sessions at the DUWO House of Music. In a project such as this it is always surprising how long of a journey can one week be. However, yesterday we were finally content to conclude our rehearsals and run-through of the program. Now we will rest and gather the right kind of focus to perform next week.
Being a small orchestra like ours, provides the possibility to work without a conductor. This gives freedom to all of the ensemble members to participate, but also quite a bit of responsibility in solving the musical problems at hand. The project ensemble came well together and as organizers we are delighted to have such invested players in our project. Thanks to all of our musicians for your hard work this week!
The organization part is also falling into place – finally we need only a few bits and pieces to make the concert arrangements as good as possible. In the blog, we will come back to you once more before the concerts with some interesting details about our repertoire.
Mark your calendars, here we come!
