Hello Elgin Encores!
Thank you for a wonderful term!
Some audience quotes about our performance:
Trolls: “That was my favourite piece!”
Moment: “That Beauty and the Beast was really nice.”
Windjammer: “I’m going to ask my band director if we can play that one!”*
Beatles: “Whoa, your Beatles really had a lot of energy.”
*don’t worry about the beginning. The trumpets had it in echo, and so why not other sections? It sounded fine.
I am always amazed at what we can accomplish when we are scared enough. 😀 I thank you again for the gift and hope to see you all in September (and many of you this Wednesday!).
