Though I'm not posting as much as in the past, I still enjoy lurking and have not lost my GPO connection.
Just thought I'd share a neat side benefit of hanging around here...
I got to know Donnie (Brasspig) Sorah from the forum and his visit to Indianapolis. My brass quintet will be playing his Dance Movements next season. (Though Donnie, in a momentary lapse, actually wrote a french horn part, I will play it on the euphonium. The part is simply too cool for a french horn.)
Additionally, the Indianapolis Brass Choir will be obtaining Paul Read's Fanfare and Processional and performing them next season (even though they contain no euphonium parts).
There may also be more in the offing as I contact more of the prodigious talent around here (chances of being contacted are greatly enhanced by presence of a prominent euphonium part backed up by some other instruments).
I met these fine composers here on the forum and look forward to performing their works. What would the chances have been of my meeting them if it were not for GPO and the forum??
So GPO helps live music, too!!
Best to all...
