A Night at the Ballet

My first performance of 2012-2013 with the Queer Urban Orchestra, on trombone.

This was the first concert with officially appointed music director Nolan Dresden. The program consisted of the following:

  • Lully : Ballet des Muses
  • Stravinsky : Circus-Polka
  • Copland : Scenes from Rodeo (Saturday Night Waltz, Corral Nocturne, Hoe-down)
  • Bedford : Persephone, 1930
  • Debussy : La Boite a Joujoux (The Toy-Box)

The trombones did not play in the first or last pieces. There were a lot of rests. But the solo in Hoe-down made up for it.
