I don't have any awesome pictures yet, but last night's Utah Wind Symphony concert with Larry Zalkind, principal trombonist of the Utah Symphony Orchestra, was fabulous.
Most of my parts were chimes, and I also played some bass drum, triangle, marimba, xylophone, and exactly four snare drum notes. Awesome!
The UWS is a rare group on the wind band front, and if you get the chance, you need to check it out. Hope to see you at a future concert.
The highlight of the evening for me was "Sunrise at Angel's Gate."
