She doesn't even show signs of fitting any of my fetishes, but I like her as if she fit all of them.

I might have an Opal fetish.

Surprisingly, we've been doing 2PM to 5PM (Music focus), then 6PM to 9PM (Drill focus) for two weeks, excluding Saturdays and Sundays.

My freshman year, when we had a different band director (He got put on administrative leave for being with a kid unsupervised), we did 8AM to 8PM for two weeks, excluding Saturdays and Sundays.

I guess since we have 179 people, we don't have much breathing room on the field, so we chunk through our drill pretty quickly. We learned two movements in one week, which was the week right before our first competition, which we won (We took away a 5 year streak from Willard, MO Cutting Edge Band. They have about 200 people).

Any wacky stories about your band camp experiences? I have quite a few.

Take any opportunity is what I say! You'll catch up if you put your mind to it!

I'm going to miss how easy high school is, but it is definitely time for harder music to enter my life! I'm one of the top players in my school, and I need a new challenge!

What is your band camp like? Crazy? Fun? Hard?

For the past couple of years it was pretty simple. 9-12 then 4-9. This past time it was very difficult, 9am-9pm straight for two weeks. It was incredibly hard, but I loved it (even when I said I hated it, haha).

And what about you? I've always wondered how band camp works with the really big bands.

Same here! I'm already accepted into Missouri State University, I'm just awaiting my audition date for the music program in February.

Where do you plan on going to college at? Also, being apart of district (Region) band and all-state band will definitely earn you brownie points in college! Directors will look to you for difficult pieces.
User avatar #93 - sortoathepenguin (10/29/2014) [-]
I'm considering a few different places. My biggest choice is a local liberal arts college called Lander University. It's about 10 minutes from my house, which is great. I'm also thinking about Furman University and the University of South Carolina, but i'm not too sure.

Yeah, that's what I figured. I want to become the very best I can be, but seeing as i'm starting to get serious about it so late, i'm really behind the ball here. I'm sure I can catch up though.

A good thing is we're starting up a Jazz Ensemble at my high school, so that should help me improve big time as well.

MAN, I FUCKING LOVE THE BLUECOATS.

Their 2013 and 2014 shows blew me away. I wish you a ton of luck on your auditions!

My district band auditions are coming up really soon (I'm ready; I made first chair last year and retained all of my playing abilities and memorization of scales).

After that, I have all-state band auditions (Fifth chair last year; We were supposed to have live auditions in Jeff City, but it got snowed out. We sent in recorded auditions. I was luckily chosen along with a senior from last year that I was good friends with).
User avatar #84 - sortoathepenguin (10/29/2014) [-]
BLOO all the way, for sure. It was between them and Carolina Crown (which is about 1.5 hour drive from my town), but we ultimately decided Bluecoats. Who knows, maybe i'll get a spot, maybe not. We'll see.

Best of luck on your auditions as well, man. Hopefully I can make region / all-state this year or next, it would give me some great experience, as i'm wanting to go into Music Education.

The picture of us is actually at our last competition that included BoA judges. I'm a senior bass clarinet player. I guess I can call myself the lead bass clarinet, but that is only because I made the all-state band last year. Do you do any district/state band stuff?
User avatar #72 - sortoathepenguin (10/29/2014) [-]
Well, it's only this past year that I have gotten REALLY serious about my playing. I would sign up for region band, but never try out due to not knowing every scale, etc. This year i'm definitely trying out.

If everything goes well, me and two buddies will make it into the Bluecoats, a DCI corps. If not that, we'll try for Spirit of Atlanta.

Sorry to hear about that! We're at 179 kids this year, and we're estimating 200 by 2016. Sadly, I won't be able to be apart of it considering I'm a senior this year. I'll be marching in the Missouri State University Pride Band next year, though!
User avatar #64 - sortoathepenguin (10/29/2014) [-]
Haha, it's all good. We ended our season on a high note though, as this was a "transition" year for our band. We were a fierce competitor in the past, but due to issues with band directors (one fired, one didn't care, now we have a great one), we were held back.

He has high hopes, and intends on taking us to BoA one year. Too bad i'm a junior and will graduate next year.

Anyways, what instrument do you play? I'm the lead trumpet at my school.
