Hi all,
my sax quartet played our first serious public performance last night.
We have done a few village fetes and old people's homes, but this was a concert for a local choir, who invited us as special guests. We waived our fee, as it was for Canine Partners, and we had a really good time.

Although I was really nervous ahead of the first piece, it all seemed to settle into place in the first few bars, and obviously our rehearsals paid off, as I felt quite comfortable, quite quickly.

You should recognise most pieces...
I get a bari solo in the first piece of part 2, otherwise (not surprisingly) I am mainly walking bass.

well done Mandy. Sounds good. Couple of things to work on, but I guess it's mostly the nerves.

Good group dynamic and feel for the music. The group needs to watch its tuning as this can mar what is otherwise good work.
