Anyways, the other part of this post I wanted to mention is I was thinking of writing a song - like a pops song - for voice and orchestra for probably the credits theme of 'The King of the Aliens' film, and from my Doctor Who mood all morning long leading up to the episode, I thought up lyrics and a melody (and chords) for the first stanza. Not sure what's going to be happening with that, but maybe it'll be a fun project to work on, along with the actual score. I'm probably going to do more with themes in the spring when I can go out for walks and work outside, because I tend to do better if I'm outdoors... Hmm...
Violin-related, our Prism concert is coming up soon! My group did not make it, but that's okay. Along with "A Christmas Festival", we're playing a piece called "Five Ukrainians in a Bell Tower", which has a swinging 5/4 time. And... it's written for two orchestras, so it's kind of like a battle! There's also a piano part, so it's quite an exciting piece. I'm still trying to figure out exactly how the stage will look when we perform, but we'll do a dress rehearsal after Thanksgiving Break next week, and I guess I'll find out that. For Solo and Ensemble this year, I'm thinking of doing Hungarian Dance No. 5 with a lot of chords, because it seems like it'll be fun to play, but I'm not 100% sure yet. So yeah. Sorry for all those crazy updates; have a fantastic afternoon and evening! :)
