Anna,

When playing my recorders in a COLD church, I find that the plastic one is
impossible to warm up, whereas the heavy wooden one warmed up and stayed
that way. I just couldn't play the plastic one up to pitch!

You might find the same with a plastic clarinet in snowy Queenstown. Happy
skiing!

Subject: [kl] Cold weather outdoor concerts

I'm about to go on tour with my orchestra, and I've discovered we're
supposed to be doing an outdoor concert in an alpine town in the middle of
winter. Am I justified in not being very happy about playing my R-13
outside in freezing temperatures? Is it likely to cause problems? I'm
considering taking a plastic clarinet down for that one concert, but I'm
wondering if that's a little bit extreme. Any advice much appreciated.

TIA
Anna
