Tonight, I’ll be playing with the River City Concert Band.
Wednesday Apr 8, 7:00PM
11211 Point East Dr
Rancho Cordova, CA
The cost tonight is $10. That includes getting to see the Sacramento Symphonic Winds. It’s going to be a fantastic show.
Saturday afternoon, I’ll be playing with River City Swing. This performance is open to the public (which I take to mean “free”).
Saturday Apr 11, 12:00PM
Same location as above
Saturday evening, I’ll be playing with the ACB Convention band, at 8:00PM. I don’t know if it is open to the public, or just to convention members.
This week is full of wonderful music, opportunities to meet and play with some skilled musicians, and really lose myself in the art.
The only problem is time. How am I going to manage my job, the volunteer hours at the convention, and the convention band practices?
Fortunately, my workplace is awesome. They let me work a 10 hour day on Monday, an 11 hour day on Tuesday, and another 10 hour day Wednesday. I can do half days on Thursday and Friday, which will allow me to make it to the practices.
Thursday and Friday evenings, I’m filling some stage crew volunteer slots. I’m also doing stage crew duty on Saturday, from 1:30 to 5:00.
I’m not going to have time do any writing or editing this week. I don’t really feel bad about it. There are only so many hours in a day, and this week, they’ve all been claimed. I’ll just have to write twice as much next week.
