Last year I played in the ECMEA All-County Band. This year, don't ask me how, I made the orchestra. I know you had that part last year, so I decided to talk to you. I have never played with an orchestra before and I am not sure what to expect. What did the parts look like last year (much resting, etc.) and are there any exercises I can practice as well as the the pieces to help me prepare? Also, what kind of tuba did you use, type, BBb, CC? (just curious) These questions may or may not be relevent, but I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance!
PS. I listened to the orchestra cd from last year, great sound!
