We are not even at the end of November and I’m already three weeks into Christmas music rehearsals.
I do like to get into the Christmas spirit – despite my repeated irritation at some of the over-commercial nonsense and forced jolity that goes on – but the fact that I start playing Chrimble music while October is a recent memory does erk me somewhat.
Still, we have some amazing music for our concert programme this year, including Three Kings Swing – which has a testing but fabulour repiano cornet solo in it. I’m really looking forward to playing that!
I’m not especially looking forward to playing Carols for hours on end in the cold, although it’s nice to provide music to Christmas shoppers.
I do try to get into the swing of it, even though I’m a complete heathen. Happy to go with the traditions of Christmas, if not the actual worship.
