Concert Season Off To Great Start

Last night we started the 2010 concert season. This is my 50th year as a member of the band and my 35th year as director.

The band numbered about 75 players and was quite well balanced.

Balance within sections and between sections was excellent. Dynamic control was also excellent, and melodic lines could be clearly heard. Intonation was also excellent.

The concert lasted an hour and fifteen minutes, and the audience numbered about 270.

This very musical performance was a joy to conduct.
