Playing at the Art Fair

Members of our newly organizing orchestra played, in various combinations, at the art fair a couple of days ago. This was sort of a last minute thing and we had very little time to rehearse, but I think it came together pretty well, all things considered.

For once, I played cello better than flute, for the simple reason that we rehearsed the harpsichord, violin and cello music two or three times before the event, and we mostly sight-read the music for the flute, oboe, and clarinet ensemble. Practicing--it makes a difference! Other groups performing were flute and harpsichord, Irish flute and harpsichord, and fiddle and string bass.

We intend to do it all again at a harvest fair in September. Hopefully, we will have a few rehearsals in between.
