After spending the summer playing concerts with colleagues in brightly colored shirts, it was a real treat to see many of the same people formally attired in white dinner jackets this weekend.
The American Winds played a subscription concert at Cal State Fullerton on Sunday.
It certainly is different playing a band concert indoors.
There is no need for clothes pins to keep the music from blowing off the stands.
(John's music didn't blow around. He is just putting the music in concert order).
There is no competing with helicopters, C-17's, or people talking on their cell phones.
Conductor Larry Curtis looks even more distinguished in evening wear:
I am very grateful to be counting measures rest...
...and praying while I'm playing.
