On Tuesday, April 3rd, Orchestra 3 of Boulder High will be heading out to the State Contest in Fort Collins. Unlike the last issue, I’m writing this on Sunday, the 1st, so I can’t say how it went just yet. However, I do look forward to it. Just like any other inter-concert period, we immediately got back to practicing after having a day off preceding our last concert in February in “North Denver” (really just Westminster or Thornton but whatever.)
We will be playing Andante Festivo by Jean Sibelius again (as mentioned in the last issue, my personal favorite) and Concerto Grosso by Vittorio Gianini, perhaps one of the longest pieces I’ve ever played. By the time this is published, it probably will have already happened, so to those who may have gone, thanks for coming.
