Globe Concert in Laramie

The six hours of rehearsal were put to good use last night. The University of Wyoming Day of Saxophone Orchestra played a half-hour pre-concert program followed by a full recital by Globe. I had a lot of fun playing sopranino in the saxophone orchestra. John conducted the group. He is a great conductor and always an inspiration to work with.

We began the Globe recital with a concerto grosso by Handel. Jennifer, Scott and I played the solo parts while John conducted the orchestra. The concert was very well received. After Handel we played Glazunov, Fox, Ulla in Africa, Dvorak, Robert Burn's Suite and finished with Rivier. Keep checking for audio from the concert.

Also attending the concert were my aunt and uncle who live in Laramie and my parents who drove all the way from Iowa--11 hours to see the concert. It was great to see them all.
