Okay, I think I’ve finally got ensembles figured out.
In terms of large ensemble, ie. symphony orchestra, the four harpists will share parts, but the other first year will get probably the majority of parts and the hardest ones, since she’s actually been playing the longest. The orchestra won’t be having any harp in it until October, so I get a few weeks with free nights, which is nice.
For small ensemble, I’ll be doing harp duets with a third year harpist who has the same teacher as me. (And in case I haven’t mentioned this, my harp teacher is SO NICE.) This will work nicely, since we have group lessons every other week, so I won’t have to fit another rehearsal into my schedule somewhere. I had kind of hoped to be in a string quartet sort of thing so I could meet some more people, but this is good too.
P.S. I discovered The Honor Roll – a great sushi place in the basement of the SUB. You can get a California Roll for $3.50, and they take UBCCard, too! Made my day.
Peace – Samantha.
