Subj: [kl] Wizard of Oz-any advice?
Date: Sat, 9 Jan 1999 13:02:08 -0500

The local community music theater organization this year ( ) is doing the Wizard of Oz (R.S.C.
Version). I'll be doing reed book I in the pit orchestra, clarinet,
bass clarinet, and alto sax.

This will be my first experience playing in a pit orchestra and
hopefully will be a good one.

Yesterday was my first time playing the bass clarinet (finally, after
all these years) and it was awesome. It's an old Leblanc with a couple
leaky pads but still was fun. I've played the alto sax a little bit in
the past but nothing major (not to mention that the Bundy II I am using
is in horrible shape). The musical is in March so hopefully I'll have
enough time to work on these instruments.

If anyone has played this show before, any tips or trouble spots I
should watch out for? I have played through it a little bit and there
are a few runs in the clarinet part that will take a little work, and
maybe a little while to get used to the bass, but nothing major. The
sax will be toughest for me especially the playout music (but no one
listens to that anyways. ;-) ). I hope I'll do fine and it'll be lots
of fun I'm sure. Let's hope they don't overestimate me...

The pressure will be fun, too, since the performance usually draws many
people from this area, and we all know it's more fun playing under
pressure. ;-)

The performances are Friday March 19th, Sat. March 20th, and Sun. March
21, so if anyone here lives around the Champlain Valley feels like
taking a trip to Chazy (less than 1 hour south of Montréal), we'd love
to have you.
