April Update

With a lot of other distractions going on, not to mention the little time suckers of Twitter and Facebook, I haven’t blogged in a while.  I have mostly been preoccupied with Camelot.  In early March I was invited to play in an orchestra playing for the musical Camelot, written by Lerner and Lowe.  We began rehearsals in March, which accelerated towards the end of April and we had the show opening this weekend.  It has been a LOT of work, but a lot of fun as well.  It was the first musical theater orchestra that I have played in and it was an awesome learning experience.  The bass part is 64 pages long and the music has many frequent key signature and meter changes and many “cuts” from the original score to fit this particular production’s script and timing.  This was a volunteer production, but it looked and sound very pro to me.  So, if you live in the area, or are visiting the Seattle area next weekend (May 1-3), come attend one of the performances of Camelot.  More info and directions can be found here:

On top of Camelot, I also play double bass in a community orchestra, the Evergreen Community Orchestra, and we have been preparing for our spring concerts working on music from Mozart, Schubert, Ravel, Debussy, and more!  Those concerts are scheduled for Friday, June 5th at 7:00 pm and Tuesday, June 9th at 7:00 pm.  The name used to be “Music Hall Community Orchestra” but was recently changed and the web URLs are still waiting updates to the new name.

After this, and I don’t want to let the kittens out of the bag too soon, I do have a new recording project that I have begun, and like all recording projects they seem to take on a life of their own.  I may begin with a certain concept in my mind of what the finished project will be like, but once I start actually working on putting it together new ideas bubble to my mind and I end up in a different place than where I planned.  It’s a bit of a fun adventure.  So, stay tuned for more.
