Well, Tuesday night was my first rehearsal with the Nashville Philharmonic. The NPO is Nashville's community orchestra. Let me tell you, it was a blast! I was able to get a copy of one of the pieces we are going to play (Carmen Suite #1) and was able to get alot of practice in before the actual rehearsal. Other than a couple of parts, it was fairly easy for someone who's only been at this for 2 years. I'm just waiting to see what the rest of the rep is going to be! It's nice to have 7 basses in the section too! I know that having a good teacher is one of the biggest things that has prepared me for this. It's nice to have someone who plays in a professional orchestra give you tips on what to expect and look for. I just had to share my excitement!
