But one I was really looking forward to got snowed out. Our big band had practiced really hard to work up the Ellington Nutcracker Suite. On the day of the concert, we got just enough snow to shut everything down. This being SC, that doesn't take much. We have rescheduled it for the 1st week of January, but I don't anticipate that we will get much for attendance, as people are pretty tired of Christmas music by then.

To my great shock and surprise, we had close to 200 people come out for out make up Christmas concert on Jan. 4th. The Nutcracker Suite went well, except for the brass missing an entrance and staying lost for about 32 bars in Peanut Brittle Brigade. That is incredibly fun music to play.

Hi! Had another one yesterday, a late christmas concert with the local community symphony orchestra in my town Södertälje a bit south of Stockholm. Rehearsed all day from 11 AM to 4 PM and after dinner a one and a half hour concert in the towns concert house. Was home at seven. There was everything at this concert, christmas songs and New-Years-Eave-Strauss-Walzes as well as other lighter music including three jazz songs, one of them with a trombone solo. A very heavy day because we had few rests  Sing it!

I didn't have a Christmas gig this year, but I did end up play a wedding reception on New Year's Eve in the Henry Ford museum. Pretty cool. :)
