I love Christmas vacation.
Basically for me, it’s been a little over two weeks off. I haven’t really been home, so i haven’t really done anything musical except for think about what my projects will be for next term in school.
For last term i finished three short pieces of a set for women’s choir, a first movement for Violin and Santoor piece, and a percussion solo piece. For next term my plan is to work on the second movement for the violin/santoor piece, a trombone solo, a choral piece for sextet using extended techniques as a main source of material, and maybe a piano piece.
For classes i will be taking:
Theory III (Orchestration)
History of Jazz
Excited i am.
Plus then there’s the opera to finish. My friend and i are done, for the most part, with the piano reductions. This next term we are working on the orchestration for the string quartet. Also, we will be finding out our budget and run time after which we can (hopefully) secure a location to have our performances.
More on that soon.
As far as everything else, i will better inform you when i get back home from my winter vacation.
