band camp

In Annie's words:

I was very lucky enough to be invited to go to Adelaide to play music at the Annual Primary School Concert Band Workshop at the Adelaide Show Grounds last week. I played Alto Saxophone as part of a 200-piece ensemble.

When I arrived at the Ridley Center there were kids with their parents and instrument cases pouring into the center. It was a large sunlit room with 300 seats in the grandstand. There were percussion, trumpets, French horns, bassoon, clarinets, flutes, saxophones, electric keyboard, tuba, bass guitars, slide trombones, kettledrums and a few others. We practiced lots of songs for two days.

On Thursday night we performed our concert in front of family and friends. We sounded awesome and at the end of one of our songs some people stood to give us a standing ovation.

Overall the experience was great. We made wonderful music and new friends.
