We had three auditions this morning, before everyone reported to the gym for the Veterans Day assembly. The band played the Star-Spangled Banner, taps, and America the beautiful. I taught the cadet orchestra warmup and we worked the first sections of The Patriot. It's coming along nicely. Later in the day I worked with the symphony orchestra on Elgar. I struggled to come up with ideas to trouble-shoot the middle section, but after brainstorming, I have some ideas. I know that the sectionals will also help greatly.
