OH MY GOSH. Oh my GOSH. I can't believe this just happened to me
I was last in the student noon recitals today and I’ve worked so hard on this awesome unconventional flute piece. It was my last one, so I tried to go out with a bang.
And I totally ROCKED it. I am so proud!
But about a minute after I went offstage, the stage manager guy came back to the doors and said: “Oh my GOD, they’re still clapping, you were supposed to go back out there!”
No one has had an encore in the student nooner recitals, not that I know of. Nobody!!!! But when I finally put my stuff down to go back out there they stopped but they had been clapping like a minute after I left the stage!!!
This is probably one of the greatest things to ever happen to me …
You guys, you don’t know how badly I want an open hole flute with a b flat footjoint. I NEED one. It produces so much of a warmer tone and a fuller sound. It’s gorgeous. (I recently played on one, in case you couldn’t tell.) ANYWAYS!! They’re super expensive, and it makes me sad… I should go to bed, goodnight, lovelies. I think you’ve heard enough of my flute ramblings. See you tomorrow.
My mother brought my lovely flute back from Russo’s today. Bit weird after playing the piccolo for three months (especially since it was a school piccolo) but she sounds better than at the end of last year and is a lot shinier too!
