 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I'm in! I'll wear lederhosen and bring my bagpipes and tromba marine. :Thmbsup:

This was taken at the rehearsal last time we tried it:

I think the correct costume really adds something to the performance, don't you? :)

P.S. Isn't that score supposed to be charred around the edges and have "additional marks of authenticity" (i.e. six beer rings and a coffee stain) for it to be a licensed performance copy?
 :P

Looks like you gave a stirring performance there. The guys in 'der Moschenpitte' are having a blast.

Don't know about "stirring."

But all charges were eventually dropped so we considered the show a success.

P.S. That's not the mosh. That's the contrabassoon, fife, and sackbutt players "discussing" who is going to get to take a solo right after the second artillery barrage wraps up.   :up:

What's a contrabassoon? As played by the Nicaraguan rebels?

He wanted to play soon, rather than late, that's why the "discussion" took place

That's a sharp looking piece, but you'd need a good staff behind the bar!

I can't read music (that may be a blessing), but I suspect you'll actually need a good bar behind the staff...

Especially for a clef hanger like that composition...

-----------

@timns - now that I've had a better chance to study the score, I've changed my mind. I don't want to play the bagpipes or tromba marine in this. Can I audition to play the dirigible part that starts the second measure into J?

What's a contrabassoon? As played by the Nicaraguan rebels?

1. It's a very large reed instrument, so-called because it is played and admired primarily by people who are totally opposed to the bassoon and all that it represents. With a tone that sounds with authority in that vast sonic wasteland which lies somewhere between a rhino's rutting call and a tramp steamer foghorn, the contrabassoon (in unskilled hands) can reduce even the strongest lover of the bassoon to tears in less than three seconds flat.

2. I have been given to understand it was. Unfortunately, the Sandinistas (despite numerous CIA reports to the contrary) were not great admirers of the bassoon. So it's efficacy was severely limited when employed against them - usually doing little more than provoking a fit of laughter (and an occasional pants wetting) from heavily armed Sandinista soldiers whenever confronted by a Contra contrabassoonist.

--- For those who are curious to learn more, check out this video by a man who, as a contrabassoonist, not only passionately hates the bassoon - he apparently has it in for jazz/funk as well.

I'm sure that after a single viewing, you'll join me when I say: So much wickedness in the World!

That'd go down like a lead zeppelin :)  (which, I believe, *is* how Led Zep got their name: Keith Moon's suggestion based on his opinion on how popular they'd be at their first gig)

Maybe not as far as some people (and me ;)) are concerned.

But it still deserved better than what that guy 'did' to it.  :(

(I'm told he's from a good family too! Whatever is this world coming to?)

That's ridiculous.  The sole purpose of whoever made that is just for the novelty of it.  It's not really usable as any kind of sheet music.
