All-District auditions are over
So yesterday was spent almost totally on auditions. Needless to say, the rest of my evening was shot. I saw some scores before I left for dinner, but unfortunately mine weren’t up yet. So it turns out that Robert, Will, and Christine took 3 of the top 4 chairs in the 11–12 Wind Ensemble. Enloe took 31 chairs overall, but I don’t know all of the numbers for Enloe students, so we’ll find out who made what on Tuesday. Quite surprisingly, however, I managed to make 1st chair for Bass Clarinet. After 6 years of waiting, I guess something finally paid off.
So the All-District clinic is next weekend, and that should be a lot of fun. Auditions for All-State are now on March 6, so I have that to prepare for now, in addition to the clinic next weekend. Oh, and that’s not to mention All-Carolina in February. It’s either February 6–7 or February 6–8; I’ve now seen conflicting reports… Their website says it’s only two days (6–7), but Mr. Hunter’s calendar says it’s three days (6–8). Last year it was also three days, so I’m not sure who to believe.
So this has been, overall, a very band-centric weekend for me, and the next several weeks are shaping up to be the same way. As for the rest of my weekend, it’s looking like scholarship essays that my parents are forcing me to write. And possibly a road trip on Monday, but we’ll see what happens with that.
The weather is grey and gloomy; the temperature is cool and cautious. There is nothing vibrant about the weather today. It’s just one of those days; faded in the wake of yesterday’s glory. Yesterday was a day of blue sky, warm sunshine, and relative happiness. Today just can’t fill it’s shoes.
And that’s about all there is to say about today in general. I’ll probably drop some messages later this weekend. Until then, I’m out!
