In case you were wondering how the rehearsal went...

The rehearsal last night was ok.
Other than a few high notes in one of the pieces, the music is reeeealllly easy.
We had 15 people show up:
Two tubas,
Two trombones,
Two euphoniums,
Two french horns,
Six trumpets,
and one percussion guy (doing stuff like chimes and bells).

Our next rehearsal is tomorrow, and our performance is Christmas Eve.

Morgen: Funny you should say that, 'cuz I had Taco Bell last night, and let's just say there were some not-so-euphonious sounds happening a few hours afterward. :)
