We did it!

Rainbow City Band performed Gustav Holst's " The Planets" tonight, except for the final movement of Neptune; we didn't have a full women's choir to employ. It went well, although we clarinets needed to persevere through Mercury closely followed by Jupiter. What a wonderful experience. It was akin to a hard day of climbing. And in July, the Seattle Symphony will perform the whole she-bang, for which we have excellent seats. Well, we may not have approached such perfection, but at least we know it from the inside out.

As I said last night on FB, playing THe Planets for me was like if you were a golfer who finally got to play Pebble Beach after watching it on TV all his life.
