    Today is rehersal, tomorrow is the show! Wish me luck.

    Well folks my irish step dance show that I put together is tomorrow. Today we are doing a long rehersal. My friend who teaches Irish step dance and I put together a small show based around a stroy I wrote called 'Legend Of The Golden Harp". All music but one is original (one traditional piece is mixed in). Some of it is new and some is from my CD Faerielore. The even is being professionally filmed too.
    Many libraries are being used but I am playing a number of GPO sounds live (heck it has EW Gold, SD, GOS, HALion strings, SAM horns and a bunch of others). I will also play the penny whistle in the finale. I will be playing directly in front of the stage which is a little unusual but we needed to give the (over 60!) dancers plenty of room. I also have my light show that goes along with it.
    To give you a better idea of the type of music I am doing here is the piece from the finale.

    Wow, Chris, The piece you posted is great. The show sounds just fantastic. I wish I could be there to see it. 60 step dancers? The house is gonna shake.

    I went up on the website and listening to the demos. Quite impressive but alas priced not for mice. For now a Big boys toy at $499 same with Spectrasonics. I’ll have to go down to the cathedral and use their chorus. Thanks again for the info.

    Chris,

    Your finale is wonderful! Your use of the pennywhistle and VOTA and marvelous. The string rhythm and arpeggios keep it driving. The brass, timpani and cymbals make it grand.

    You will be taking your audience on a majestic flight over the Irish countryside. Expect an ovation.
