I played a distanced outdoor service, both solo and with a piano for a few hymns. Wrote my own piccolo obligato for Christ the Lord is Risen Today - went very well! My first gig in a year, so it was super fun to play for people again. My boss and I have also started a reading brass quintet - maybe if we’re lucky we’ll actually get to perform at some point! I’m clearly the one in the group that has stayed on a regular practice schedule through the pandemic, but they are all good musicians and I’m sure they will bounce back pretty quickly now that they have some incentive. We all had so much fun at our reading session last week! Maybe we should call ourselves the Vaccinated Brass....

Thanks to a covid outbreak a month ago, our brass quartet this year was just me - opening, and then after the sermon to the end (2 services) as I had to trade places with the choir and they were the first half of the service. I would post my descant and, well, not sure what to call them - embellishment parts? - here, but I suspect descant trumpet parts in bass clef would not be well received. . . . .
(what can I say, when I am in a hurry, like making up new parts, I stick with what comes easiest)

Hi, Patrick, nice to hear you are getting to play during these difficult times.
