my opinions on the instruments since you guys are asking (reblog and add yours!!1!)
french horn: honestly so pure. i always think of Dvorak’s 9th when i hear them and u g h y e a s
tuba: my bias here should be obvious
euphonium / baritone: honestly they’re so pretty and cute and nice to listen to. basically improved versions of tubas (sorry @me)
flute: pretty but anyone who can play them is clearly dabbling in dark magic
mellophone: i haven’t met one but i really like their sound. its so nice and… not to be redundant but mellow
trumpet: tbh i could listen to trumpets all day. even beginning players sound amazing to me
trombone: i always listen to the trombones when i’m confused on my part, so they’re sort of my anchor. thanks frens
piccolo: similar to flutes but the notes are even prettier and the players are using even more dark magic
saxophone: honestly saxophones=awesome jazz to me, and i love jazz, so
clarinet: they sound like the ethereal wood fairy version of flutes (im not sure why i think this). there’s a really good clarinet player at our school so i always think of their solos when clarinets get brought up
oboe: like clarinets but more flute and less wood fairy
bassoon: oboes but stronger
percussion: thank you kind friends for keeping the beat when i am too lazy to count
piano: probably the very purest musical insturment
viola: like with french horns i always think of Dvorak and how awesome y'all’s parts are in his stuff
violin: amazing but also definitely dark magic
cello: i live to listen to cello solos. (also just Dvorak in general, but the two are intertwined)
bass: you’re the string version of me. i respect you

How Do I Love Thee ?
By Poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)
How do I love thee ? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right ; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seem to lose With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life ! and if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.
THIS IS THE FIRST MARCHING BAND MY SPORTS FOCUSED SCHOOL HAS IN ANYONES MEMORY. THIS, AT ALMOST THIRTY, IS THE LARGEST WE’VE EVER BEEN. I AM SO PROUD OF THESE GUYS, WE’RE GOING FAR MY FRIENDS. I LOVE YOU ALL
