Melodica: Jammin’ in da orchestra

It’s the second rehearsal of the Logan Orchestra, which performs Aug 1-2 as part of this year’s Queensland Music Festival (QMF).

We have a new location: Old Logan Village Road, Waterford. So I pray to Google Maps and off we go.

Lovely Isabel was there, waiting for us with new music, here she is.

Looking at the music, Melodica has chords and…a reggae beat! Aw, look at that! Bars and bars of it. Today we are groovin’

I managed to keep count when I wasn’t playing, most of the time. Conductor Shaun only shouted once: “Melodica, this is you, now.”

Anyway, he doesn’t seem too mad with me. What do you think?

We were in a lovely place, Canterbury College. I think we’re having a few rehearsals here. The college is hosting an Arts Open Day on May 26. So I thought I would include the flyer here for your perusal.
