Wow! I don't know that I've ever had a month that was so full of such fun things!
Last night was one of the things I've been working toward since I bought my flute. I was a bit nervous driving over: what if I couldn't cut it? What if the music is too hard? What if I end up looking like I don't know what I'm doing?
I had no reason to question any of it. Even though there were parts that I didn't get the first time, I wasn't the only one, and I got it the next time. We had a total of 5 flutes last night; I made sure to sit in the last chair for comfort. It was weird sitting there: I don't think I've ever played the 2nd flute part in my life. I kept having to turn my stand and chair to the left instead of the right.
At the break, the lady who sits in the 1st chair turned around and asked me about joining the flute choir in town. So, I guess I didn't do quite that badly! There's an informational meeting tonight; then there will be a try-out before practice begins.
At the end of practice, the lady who was sitting in the first chair for the 2nd flute part said that she is going to be out of town the week that we are having a couple of concerts, so she asked if I would take over the top spot for 2nd flutes. Of course, there are only 2 of us left, but she didn't ask the other person!
So...between music and camping, it looks like I'm getting ready for that empty nest!
