I can't wait for the finals, it's going to be excellent. We've work our butts off to get there winning the Southwest regionals in April. I haven't listened to the piece we have to play, 'Sunset Rhapsody', but some say there is nothing to it. There may be hidden depths to it who knows? Somethings have a way of surprising you, especially test pieces! Representing the Southwest is one plus side to taking part. It's also a great chance for all the band to get to know each other better. One member of the band suggested that we should play musical beds. That would be interesting!!!!!! and a great way of getting to know each other. To get to Dundee we have a 15hr journey. A long trip on a bus. Something some of the band are not looking forward to. As they say 'a mans got to do what a mans got to do' we all get on well, it's going to be a laugh. We're going to find lots of things to do to occupy our minds and relieve the boredom.
