Band Concert: Part Three

One moment that really stood out to me at last weekend's concert took place early in the concert.  The second song in the program, "On a Hymnsong of Philip Bliss," was outstanding.  This song was selected by director Terry Odelli to play in memory of late band member John Johns, a trombone player, who passed away in December of last year.  I feel that the description for the song given during the concert prior to our performance by Terry really set the mood for the song once we started playing.  While playing it, I felt a sense of passion that is the reason why I love performing music.  It was a really emotional experience for me, as a player, and really was a worthy tribute for John.
