I guess it's half timing and the other half's luck

    I wish I had your show. I love the Beatles D:

    (also I was being sarcastic about next year's show, I guess that wasn't too obvious or something)

    It was actually fairly easy to memorize the opener, since I actually played a different version last year in concert band. The only problem I ever had with the music was not playing when I was supposed to, because I was used to the flutes playing those notes in the concert band arrangement. The ballad and closer are two differently-arranged parts of a three-part piece that the wind ensemble played last year. Too bad we're not playing my favorite of Balmages' music, Among the Clouds (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NjlADVI0pX8) (though I suspect it would be somewhat hard to march that). D:

    The theme of the show is Music by Brian Balmages, although the band director refers to it as Connexus (and there's even a specific Connexus set which we hit on the first big impact of the opener and a few times after). There's getting to be progressively less sense in the themes each year, though. Four years ago, when our band director first came to the school, it was West Side Story. The year after that it was Stargazing. The year after was Music by American Composers (I think officially referred to as American Composers or something) and this year it's Music by Brian Balmages/Connexus. Next year our band director's probably going to make the show Three Different Adaptations of One Piece That I Composed. 8D I'm going to try and get my mom to videotape our full show so I can put it on Youtube and I'll probably send you the link once that happens (so far we have the opener, the ballad, and six sets of the closer done). What's your theme?

    And 14 of the 34 moving sets I have are backwards marching.

    Earlier this year, when I came back to band camp after not having done anything in band since November, I managed to screw up some of the commands. Such screw-ups included going to attention with the wrong foot. xD I'm not sure how I pulled that one off. Although even after getting re-accustomed, I found out recently that one of our sets is Hold 9 Move 12, so I have to step off with the right foot. I daresay somebody's going to mess it up sometime.

    This makes my fifth year playing, second year marching. I love playing the trumpet, even if I'm not incredibly good at it. (My teacher says I have really good sightreading skills, though.) What about you?

    So I just saw from one of your posts that you were in a marching band. :D What do you play? I play trumpet.

    Kinda. I've only seen re-runs of the show, but it's pretty awesome.
