We had the first rehearsal for this weekend's Holiday Pops concerts with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. Ron Jenkins always puts together a fun and balanced program. Both the Symphony Chorus and the Children's Choir sound great.
Now for my little pet peev. I hate it when composers write inconsistent versions of the same rhythm. Pick a style and stick with it. Please!
The second bar in this photo has the same rhythm as the first measure of the second line. But sight reading the two inconsistent versions can easily lead to questioning whether it's a different rhythm. Do composers seek out obscure new ways to mark their territory? It's memorable, for the wrong reason.
