I will be playing with the Elgin Symphony this coming weekend. We have a really excellent program planned:
|Horn Concerto No. 1|
|Symphony No. 4|
The conductor for this series of concerts is Alexander Mickelthwate, one of the assistant conductors for the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I haven’t worked with him before, but the Elgin Symphony typically gets really excellent conductors, so I am looking forward to it.
Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 is a real workout for the bass section, and a lot of my students have had to learn it for All-State Orchestra auditions, concerts, or for professional orchestra auditions. This would be a great opportunity to hear an excellent orchestra play it.
