Well...being that only one person answered my question of the week...BBJ wins with all answers correct! Congrats! I would've taken two different answers. But first, here's the question again. WHAT SONG DID FERRIS BUELLER SING ON HIS DAY OFF AT THE PARADE? SONG AND ARTIST, BONUS POINTS FOR THE YEAR THE MOVIE WAS MADE. so...the first correct answer is "Danke Schoen" by Wayne Newton. The second correct answer would've been "Twist and Shout" by the Beatles. The year the movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" was made was 1989. So congratulations to BBJ, your prize is on it's way :)
NYSSMA is this Friday. I have my time, 5:25pm. It's a pretty long drive for a 10 minute evaluation. But I think it's worth it. Once again, the score is out of 28 points. We're judged on our tempo, dynamics, rhythms, articulation, posture, technique...that kind of stuff. So I'll let you know how that goes probably on Saturday.
By the way, sorry I didn't update this past Saturday. I was in long island having a great weekend with ma familia :) we had a very Happy Easter!
AND! I should probably tell you that today in my jazz band rehearsal, I tried out for every solo possible, I bombed one of them, but I suppose the rest were good. Umm yeah I'll let you know on that too as soon as I know what's going on.
My spring concerts this year are on 2 different days, one for jazz, one for 7/8 band. The jazz band concert is May 18, and the 7/8 concert is May 19. It may seem like awhile, but in rehearsal time, it'll go by so quick.
That's all I have to say...well th-th-th-th-th-th-th-that's all folks!
Stay Musical :)

Question of the Week...

There's not much to say so I'm just going to skip to the question of the week. The question is WHAT SONG DID FERRIS BUELLER SING ON HIS DAY OFF DURING THE PARADE? I'd like the song and the artists who sing it. Bonus points if you can tell me the year the movie was made! Try not to cheat! The first person to comment on this post with the most correct answers will get a prize. Good luck!
Stay Musical :)

All County

I have not updated in a while. I'm sorry. BUSY BUSY BUSY! All County concert was Friday...It was so much fun. I sat next to one of my friends, which was fun because we know each other and it was not awkwardly silent the whole 6 hours. It was so fun. My question of the week is actually based on one of the songs we played. The John Williams: Movie Adventures song. That was my favorite one that we played.
So because All County is officially over... :( .... NYSSMA has my full attention now. I NEED to PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. I don't really have much to say, there's nothing new going on. I'll take off the All County links from the BAND SONGS tab. :(
OH! one more full week of school and then Spring Break! But before spring break, the last day of school, Friday, is an NCBI meeting which is ALL DAY out of school. Basically we teach other kids in my school the point of NCBI which is to be an ally and help others in any way possible. I did it last year it was really fun. After school that day is the talent show. So in other words, Friday will be a great day.
That's about it. So I'll go.
Stay Musical :)
