This last month of October was a very intense and musical month for me: lots of rehearsals and (finally!) lots of concerts. It could not end but with music.
And the answer is: kinda good.
Last Sunday, before October ended, we were supposed to have a “Verbroederingsconcert” with another fanfare but, unfortunately, they had several covid cases so concert had to be cancelled. A bitter reminder that is nightmare is much still going on. It was a pity, since we had worked really hard for it. Luckily, the bestuur reacted very fast, and we played our concert in the church of Mopertingen: in our home, with our people, in our way.
After that, we played In the bleak mid-winter, by Gustav Holst, Highlights from La La Land, and Etienne Crausaz’s Balkan Dance, a really challenging work. And, of course, a gift: Gallito, the pasodoble. I think it sounds better with fanfare than with band, but for sure it sounded great with these musicians, to which I want to thank every moment we had and every moment to have.
