Sunday Afternoon

I remember exactly what was happening when this picture was taken. It's 1976. We're in the rehearsal room behind the concert hall at 855 Comm. Ave. It's a GBYSO wind ensemble rehearsal. It's sunday afternoon. We're rehearsing H. Owen Reed's La Fiesta Mexicana. Hal Janks is conducting. I'm using a pair of Vic Firth "ultra staccato" mallets (the original ones with the felt dyed pool table green.) They are the coolest sticks ever. They are perfect for the timpani solo in the first movement of the Reed. Everyone is concentrating. We're into this piece big time. Nobody wants to screw up. My dad has a new camera. He's shooting super fast Kodak TRI-X. He's standing right next to me.
