You should have SEEN the sun this morning!!!!!! It rose as a deep orange globe casting a straight column of color across an even-more-iced-over Lake Michigan. You know how I took all those great pictures yesterday? Well, it killed the batteries in my camera and I didn't have any spare AAs with me...so I MISSED being able to capture and share this incredible image!
Anyway, I'll be on my way to the store directly to pick up a few.
My SWE (symphonic wind ensemble) audition today went ok. I played really well except for 2 key high notes--one at the end of Copland's Outdoor Overture (dangit!), and one at the end of his Ceremonial Fanfare (double dangit...even though the rest of this particular excerpt went better than I'd ever done it before...yay for that at least?). The Pines of Rome bits were my strongest--if (a BIG if!) I end up with a solo on SWE's upcoming recording, I'm betting on Pines...I was hoping for Outdoor Overture though...oh well.
