Sunday, April 10, 2011 @ ALL THE BEST SENIOR HIGH!!
Hello Senior High!! (:
YPS(SSSS) here, wanna wish you guys all the best for SYF (junior college level)'2011! (:
Know you guys have long hours of full bands etc, but really jiayou!! remember after all these tough full bands, you will play extremely well for syf :D do have a healthy lifestyle and sleep early (lol, but i dont sleep early de :S, but still, you all older so must sleep more :D - a bit nonsense but heck care :x)
Heard you guys on saturday (lol, i felt extra when i went in w thiri, she wanted to hear how her senior plays etc) sounds very nice :D
DHSSB (JH) Clarinets are on your back :D
Bonne Chance! Bon Courage!! (:
J'aime la clarinette (:
@ DHSSB CLARINETS ROCK!
I cant think of other sentence other than dhssb clarinets rock :O
ANW, after all many long hours of practice and rehearsal,
DHSSB (JUNIOR HIGH) has attained GOLD for the recent SYF'2011!
pieces played: Two Symphonic Movements by Vaclav Nelhybel and The Singapore Flyer by Satoshi Yagisawa [heh, i write in case 20years down the road i read this blog & i forgot the pieces we've played for SYF]
Congratulations to DHSSB JH!! :D yay!!
I have to say, clarinets (junior high) has bonded so much (i dont care the definition of terence's bonded section means). I have to admit, half a year ago, i had difficulties trying to convey my thinkings to clarinet section about working hard etc.
I remembered, the long hours of long notes, foundation killed a lot of people and that 5minutes of break isnt enough actually. but our section's tone now is so so much better :D and so much more in tune! :)
Now, i have a son and daughter :D hahahaha, never imagine myself to have kids in clarinet sections half a year ago. Remember in November, everyone just leave after band with their own friends, and now. we go to circle line as a section. WOW, thats a big change.
Lol, now no one mention anything and everyone just come for afternoon practices :D so glad (:
Idk when the time when we suddenly started walking together as a section. but indeed this means something. i really cherish the -idk whats the word- feeling in the section. family i guess? :)
I really want to say, i love clarinets (:
Though syf is now over, may we continue to stick to each other and work hard for rhythm!! :)
my last rhythm as JH member.
lol, seriously time flies. a few days ago, i went to search for saga scores 'cos thought we are playing it for taiyo, i found overture no.1 and 2. wow, they already turned yellowish.
i remember following alissa in 2nd stands, and she's the one who always tell me whether im sharp or flat and how to blend in etc.
now, i already the SL of clarinet section -.- and have no one to depend on for tuning :O
i(i think can write as "we" yeah?) wanna make this last rhythm the best rhythm ever, jiayou!!
Rhythm - 28 May 2011, counting down, 48 more days! and we have no idea what we're really playing for it. lol :S
Clarinet (section / instrument) holds a very important place in my heart x3
