No Concert day

I had a day with no concert(but there was rehearsal) in the middle of our tour this time.


It was nice to stay in the hotel until late morning.

I spent good time with my job "ironing". ;)




I moved to Miyako city from Morioka city by bus.

It took about 2.5 hours, but it was nice to take bus in nice nature views. :D





I practiced little bit after taking some rest in the hotel in Miyako. :)




Then, there was rehearsal in the evening.

It was very hard day!! :)




Maestro had very nice T-shirt! ;)

Awesome!! :D

Travel to Niigata

My orchestra's school concert tour started this week again.

This time is in Niigata.



I needed to change train in Tokyo, so I moved to Tokyo one day before and stayed my brother's house. :)

It was nice to have Syabu Syabu dinner with my brother in Tokyo. :D




I moved to Niigata from Tokyo next day.

It was very nice day for traveling! :D






I practiced in the hotel room after I arrived to Niigata and prepared for tour. :)

Enjoying hard days

It's not easy to balance for work hard and rest well.

I'm occupied a lot of things right now and feel hard to make good rest to my body and mind.


But I'm enjoying working hard because my work is making good music. ;)

I'm sure that I love music. :)



I had concert in Nara two days ago.

It's not often we give concert in Nara.


It was nice to travel to Nara with nice country view from train and walk in the city in Nara. :)




Concert was with the program of John Williams.

All movie music by him like Star Wars, Harry Potter, Superman and more.


As you can imagine easily(if you are a brass player), it was very tough!!!

I don't think we enjoy playing music... I was just thinking "Do all of them somehow well".



I was so exhausted when concert was done...

That was not healthy program for musician(especially for brass player).



I had very good time in Osaka with Australian Euphonium player Fletcher(Mitchell) yesterday. :D



It was first real meeting for us, but it was very nice and I enjoyed talking with him very much. :)

I hope we can play together next time!! :D



After that, I was occupied with orchestra rehearsal.



Until the middle of July, I would be busy like this.

So I need to be smart enough to survive this hard period!!
