Tonight we had our first rehearsal for summer orchestra, we ARE playing all of Wm Tell! Yay. Also the Hebrides Overture, and a couple of fun marchy things, but the rest is jazz and they actually have several people doubling on saxes - they are excited to do it but I just hate that stuff. I'm glad they didn't just put in an obligatory oboe part though. Of course we are doing a few things with oboe doubles the trumpet all the way through, and what is up with that oboe part in stars and stripes???? No one can possibly hear it, and in the original band parts it is only piccolo (at least our principle flute told me that). It is fun to play but completely superfluous.
