drumline

so this spring i have nine people in the drumline. four of the people in the drumline are new this spring, although three of them were in last spring just not this past fall.

it's smaller than what i've had in the past, so i had to make the decision to not use any tenors, which is weird since the three people that were in last spring that came back was my entire tenor line. now one of them is playing snare and the other two are playing bass drum.

we had our first real rehearsal yesterday, although it was mainly putting together the harnesses for all of the new people and sight-reading through the music with the ensemble, and yeah. we're small, but the group is good. the people from prior are already starting to develop a rapport with the people from this past season, and the foundations of what we have are pretty solid.

it feels weird not to have a tenor line. it makes some of the tunes where i'm used to hearing the tenor voice sound really empty. but we're going to mount gock drums on the snares for added texture, so that will help.

overall i'm pretty excited. kind of makes me wish the mardi gras season was longer.
