A band of merry pals
I few years ago I performed as part of an on-stage band in Tongue and Groove Theater's production of Le Petomane. I was a fun experience, so I hoped I could do it again whenever things worked out with my crazy schedule. Now that I'm out of Japanese class, the timing is perfect, and I'm going to be a part of Tongue and Groove's production of Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors! The band is made up of all of my pals - Jonathan (who is our musical director), Lisa, Ernesto, Chris and myself. We're trying to compose and play Renaissance style music, which is challenging, but cool - I'm pretty amazed at how well we're capturing the sound! My percussion is pretty limited, but I also get to play a little guitar and some harpsichord (which looks strangely like a Yamaha keyboard), too. We've already started rehearsing with the actors (my pal Conrad has a part), and my schedule will be kind of hectic through our eight performances next month, but it's going to be a blast. I'm just anxious to find out what my costume will be - I really don't want to see myself in tights!
