Fall Orchestra Rehearsal

About 1 week ago,  I had an orchestra concert. I tried out in the summer for the Preparatory Strings orchestra, and I made it in .  I go to orchestra every Thursdays, from 5:00 to 6:15. The conductor gave me 5 pieces to learn, and the orchestra is supposed to learn the pieces at home, and then the conductor helps us put it together. This orchestra has strings and winds such as violins, cellos, violas, bass, oboe, clarinet, flute, french horn, tuba, and many more. I sit in the second violin section, and next year, I will improve, and hopefully move up to the first violin section. Hannah plays in the first violin section in the youth strings. Unfortunately, my Mom couldn't get a recording of her pieces.

The first song we played was called Dance Infernale by Stravinsky. It was a very loud and aggressive song, and the most important instruments were the winds. Then we played Go West by Ralph Ford. The violins were the most important instruments in the piece as they had the melody. The next song we played was called Bercuese and Finale and it was a very mysterious song with numerous trills.  After that, we played The Pink Panther, which I enjoyed playing the most. Lastly, we played the Typewriter, and for this piece, there was someone typing on the type writer while people were playing there instruments. 

This was our last practice before the concert. I hope you enjoy!
