Day 255: SLO at the 'Keddie'

At the Keddie, again
 Day 255 (18 Aug) Sunday. Concert day. 

Dawn, at 6.12am
Not a lot else gets done on concert days. Although the concert itself doesn't start until 2.00pm, there is an early sound check, a 'top and tail' rehearsal as required and sometimes a little extra work on more challenging pieces. 

There's also quite a bit of idle time for some of us--some pieces we are not in, some rehearsal takes a little extra time. I tend to tweet a bit, to show the public a little of the 'behind-the-scenes' scenes. 
Waiting, waiting...

It was another lovely start at 6.12am. The 'dawn' series will end up looking quite interesting at the end of this exercise. 

Nice to turn out to the Kedron-Wavell Services Club again, and I'm looking from the stage in a slightly different way having been here a couple of weeks ago for the ABC Exhumed evening. This is our twelfth or thirteenth year playing here and it is usually one of those entertaining concerts, and a bit of a favourite since we play to an audience that wouldn't usually listen to an 'orchestra'. 

Home again, at 6.12pm
The program is not our usual for this venue, a little too 'serious' so the audience is down although those who turn up are impressed by the talent of the student musicians. 

Once we're done it's time to pack up and head home. They are intense days and usually require a bit of rest and recuperation...after fish and chips, it's into the Bertie Beetles...then bed.
