The day I’m not liking someone I can’t practically be with should be announced as a public holiday.
I think people underestimate how much these things matter to me.
Les Mis was my first proper contact with musical theatre - my school choir performed a medley and, being one of the only guys, I had a couple of solos. I fell in love with the music and thus opened a whole world of musical theatre, one that I intend on staying in for life.
Pit Bands/Orchestras…something I’m worried about is not being ‘good’. Without sounding too pretentious, I know I’m a pretty decent flute player, along with other instriments, but I don’t think I’ll ever make it orchestrally or as a soloist. Thats why I’m persuing the music I love, musicals, in my musical profession. I get to challenge my skills on all the woodwinds I can play, all whilst performing music I love and I know others enjoy. Its either Liszt or Lloyd-Webber for life, and I think I know which I would rather.
Finally, Captivate. An amateur company with professional values and outcomes. I love these people; they share my passion for the genre and enable me to become a part of professional looking and sounding results. I’ve only been with them a year and a half, but I’ve made some of my best friends and memories there, built confidence not only in playing, but for life as well.
Thank you to everyone who is a part of these things in my life - I have something to work towards.
