Start Fresh after a Coffee Break!

August 20, 2013 at 4:43 PM

I guess maybe it was a good thing my birthday happened and I got into a few new 'toys', for now that I decided to spend some time on music this morning, I have some brilliant ideas that I was struggling to come up with when working before. I'm currently working on a piece called "An Evening Romance in Paris for orchestra", and it's turning out to be a very beautiful piece, rich in strings, fluttered in flutes, caked in French horns, iced in harp and piano. I'm quite proud of this, and if I continue working in September, I hope to submit it around Halloween-time (like last year, I believe) for the composition contest. I don't know if I ever mentioned it, but I did get the results back, and they were helpful. For publication purposes, I should use a more professional outlook on the score, as well as attempt to get a real orchestra to play. That will be very exciting if I can get a real orchestra to play my music! :)
