I still get chills when I think about how moving that piece of music was...*sighs*

Oh, by the way, I got 7th chair out of 12...against the BEST flute players in AMERICA!!! I'm the 7th best flute player in AMERICA!!!! Go me!!!

Thanks ya'll!!

HBOA was awesome...like, the best experience I have EVER had...even better than NY!!!

CDH35: Yeah, the music was pretty hard...actually, the hardest piece was only at around like eighth note equals 74...it was really weird. The title was Exotic Particles and the Confinement of Quarks...by Freund. The only other ensemble that has ever played it, was the Indiana University Wind Ensemble, which it was commissioned for. It's an...interesting piece. It's somewhere on the internet, if you just search for it on the Indiana University's website. We also played Lincolnshire Posey (Granger), The Red Machine, Sky is Waiting, and The Fairest of the Fair. The Red Machine was the most technical...Lincolnshire was really demanding, and Sky is Waiting required a LOT of really great musicianship...it's the piece that put chills up and down my spine, we played it so well. You should DEFINATELY do HBOA...if you make it, we'll have to meet up or something. You'll get to meet all the SC people and stuff!! lol.

As for all the string people on here that live in the US, ya'll should give it a try too...it's the experience of a lifetime...and a great ensemble to be in as a high schooler...the best one you'll ever get into in HS...everyone is really nice and welcoming too. If anyone has ANY questions about it, I can definately clear them up for you...I wish anyone who decides to audition the VERY BEST OF LUCK!!!!

Yeah, it was the same. Sorry I didn't see this sooner. But chair placements, they use selections from the music you'll be playing at the concert.
