The band #SQUAD singing session before the game a couple weeks ago.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while…

But I’ve been pretty busy lately. But anyways, today our director made us march the hill and the ground was wet and I switched to bass drum and I took a couple steps going down and slipped and the drum landed on my face. I then stood up and put my drum back on and the director was laughing while telling me to get back in line.

This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.

favorite things about this

  • literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
  • the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
  • all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
  • that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.

misssinformation:

I’m not even two hours into school and they have already fucked up tremendously.

We started band camp on July 29th August 21st from 8-4 with an hour and a half lunch break not bad of a lunch break but it's so hot and humid in Texas the temperatures are above a 100. We also have 12 hours days from 8am - 8 pm I hate these days they start this week on Tuesday! Agh it's going to suck. We have a band of about 170 or 180 it's a lot of hard work.

If there’s one thing I learned from band, it’s that band is hard. And painful. But 12 hours??? I sleep for 12 hours in the summer…

We just finished our two weeks of band camp. The first week was 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and we stayed outside until noon with only 45 minutes for lunch. The temp was mostly around 98 degrees. The second week was 12:00 to 9:00. Inside till 5:00 then outside till 9:00. Only 45 minutes for dinner. And any of our water breaks were only about 5 minutes and we only had three each day. But our show looks great so far. All of our work has paid off!

Well I’m glad to hear that. It was pretty cool here for band camp. Mostly around the 60s and 70s.

Our band camp starts tomorrow and its from 9-9 in the Texas heat until August 29th

Geez. We have practice tomorrow after school from 3:45-6.

I read all the anon mail about everyone's band camp starting at like 7 in the morning and sometimes going till like 9 Pm and i think that's the craziest thing because mine starts from 4:45 to 9. We don't rehearse as long as other bands but still.

I know. Some people just have super long camps…
