Okay, for those of you who DON'T know...the New Mexico State University
Symphonic Winds is travelling to Washington DC in two weeks for a short
performance tour. Those of you on mailing lists whom I haven't had the
pleasure to meet, it'd be great to at least get the chance to shake your
hand (our schedule is quite packed, so socializing is pretty much out,
except for maybe a late night drink or two, but I'd still like to meet
anyone in the DC area). It'd also be great to say hi to my
threeve-gajillion family members in the area, too. So, here's a
rundown of what we're doing, and when:
Wednesday, May 16
4:50p Arrive at Ronald Reagan Airport, Delta #678 via Dallas
6:30p Provided dinner at Thunder Grill, Union Station
Sightseeing (I'm not sure if this is 'free' time or not)
9:30p Check in, Holiday Inn, Tyson's Corner
(It's about halfway between Arlington and the airport)
Thursday, May 17
11:00a Clinic at Hotel with Col. Gabriel, US Army Bands
12:15p Um...this is still shady...lunch and concert for a
high school...details are still being worked...
5:00p Provided dinner at Old Country Buffet
7:00p Arrival at Fairfax Community/Recital Hall (*shrug*)
7:30p Performance: Fairfax
9:30p Return to hotel
Friday, May 18
8:30a Depart hotel
10:00a Attend "Pershing's Own" rehearsal (Woo woo!)
Then lunch on own...
1:00p Arrive at the Jefferson Memorial
1:30p Performance: Jefferson Memorial
2:45p Group Photo/Sightseeing (again, um, dunno how free)
5:30p Provided dinner at Il Porto Ristorante
9:30p Hotel, sleep (sh'yah, whatever)
Saturday, May 19
8:30a Depart Hotel, sightseeing (still possibly restricted)
3:00p Approx load and depart time
5:40p Depart Delta 975, Ronald Reagan Airport
We're taking a big ol' list of stuff to play, so each performance will
vary. Here's our selections:
Grainger: Irish Tune/Shepard's Hey
Bernstein: Profanation from Symphony 1, "Jeremiah"
J.William: Summon your mom...er, Summon the Heros
Sousa: Washington Post
Sousa: The Thunderer
Hearshen: Symphony 1, Mvt.II: After the Thunderer
Milhaud: Suite Francaise
Bach: Fantasia in G
Barker: Gershwin! Medley (Help, I have become Britney Spears!)
I hope I can meet any of you out there - I'm not hard to spot. I'm the
clarinet player in the tuxedo! And I have long hair, too. I won't be
playing bass or contra for this (I'd rather not travel with the contra
anyhow, and I'm not our bassist this semester), but I'd still like to run
into some folk from those listservs as well!
Hope to see you there!
