This has been my first week truly freelancing and playing in an orchestra. Not just a pops concert for Christmas or the 4th of July, but a true orchestra concert. I'm playing principal, of all things as well, on a concert filled with fairly easy pieces. We are playing Schubert 8 and the Faurè Reqiuem.
I am just glad it's that rather than something crazy hard where I could really screw it up in comparison.
In other news: I've been listening to two albums fairly heavily on repeat that are new this year. These are Anderon Paak's new album Malibu and composer Anna Meredith's new album Varmints.
