Playing Carmina Burana last Saturday with the Midland-Odessa Symphony was so much fun and the performance was marvelous! The soloists, choir, and orchestra were all a joy to work with and the crowd’s energy was incredible. The symphony has a beautiful hall, the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center, that is situated about halfway between Midland and Odessa. The acoustics are as beautiful as the building itself. I was told that you can hear everything from the audience, even something as small as pulling your swab through the instrument too noisily…no pressure!
Aside from getting to play an incredible piece, the camaraderie here
cannot be beat. My hostess spoiled me and even though this is only my
second visit, I have made a lot of friends in this orchestra.
