Seussical The Musical

Earlier this week I fulfilled a dream of playing violin in a musical. A theatre company in Brisbane put on a one day performance of Seussical The Musical. I really just like saying it!! It was super fun!! But I will just say, how the hell do professional musicians do this? I have massive knots in my shoulders, neck pain, have discovered muscles I didn't know I had, and a sore back!! From approximately 6 hours of violin playing spread over about 13 hours. Madness!! I will never think as music as a 'lazy' activity ever ever again!

Good job! Man, I can't imagine playing for that long. I can't even remember the last time I sat for that long! (Maybe on an airplane?) Gosh, I admire you. How long did you have to practice? And yes, what a fun title.

I'm sorry it's been awhile since I last commented on your blog. For some reason I'd try to get into it from my google reader, but I couldn't. But I was reading your posts!! :)

Take care,

Thanks Amy, I can tell you, it was a challenge!! You should see the knots in my shoulders, epic!! We only had 3 weeks practise (one session per week) which was a bit nuts, but it all turned out really well thank goodness!!

Don't feel bad, I haven't done a lot of commenting on your blog of late either!! But have been reading it!! I do so enjoy it :)
