This year, as always, I am involved with Encore Brass’ Oktoberfest season. A little different than normal, however, is that our conductor of many years is stepping down. With many roles to fill, it was decided that I should take over conducting duties for the Oktoberfest music.
It has been a steep learning curve, as I have never conducted a group before, in addition to suddenly being in charge of programming and making sure parts are covered. I am enjoying the challenge.
Gig Count Update:
I didn’t get a chance to post about a gig the Waffle Taco did at the Beer Bunker/Cactus, which share a great outdoor area in the back. I also played another church service. With another WTF on labor day weekend, I will hit 24!
