    Yeah it wasn't much. I had enough space for the instruments, stands, and my flute and clarinet case; the bass clarinet was outside the orchestra pit up against the wall. Thankfully, I was given a...

    I don't recall there being a tenor sax part, unless you meant the clarinet is meant to played "sleazy" on "Master of the House". I mean, there was an alto sax part in the original Les Miz pit, but no...

    I do play the flute, but my forte is the clarinet but you never know. And do you mean play alto flute or alto recorder in a "sleazy" manner? And what do you exactly mean by "sleazy"?

    Wooden clarinets used to be the only clarinet around. Whether it was a 6th grader learning the clarinet or clarinetist in the New York Philharmonic, they had wooden clarinets. For one reason or...

    The screw completely broke off. It popped off and it fell out. And even when my band director and I attempted to screw it back in, nothing worked

    Just judging from all those mics. The only time I've seen mics in pit is when the orchestra is backstage and they're mic'ed so they can be heard.

    Gold and shiny saxes galore. Glistening in the light. I also just noticed that the woodwind setup is setup like a jazz band. Well, sort of. And where was the orchestra?

    What types of reeds do you use?

    What type of reeds do you guys use for your instruments? Do you use the same brand for all? Or a different brand for each instrument? It'd be cool to know. For me, I'm currently using Vandoren V-12...

    Well, I finally got my oboe. And wow is it something. From what I see on the oboe it was made by a company known as Conn. I've seen this name a few times, but not so much. The serial number is P205....

    I'm listening to Glen Miller's In The Mood. Playing that song as one of our many songs for Jazz Ensemble and possibly for the Dubuque Oktoberfest. Amazing song in my opinion :smile:

    I was fairly unimpressed with MuseScore and I didn't want to get into LilyPond because it was text-based input. I'll just stick to the pencil and paper for now
