Blake Music Majors
as a few of you know, the upcoming musical (performing in may) is 'into the woods'. i've heard from many musical theatre majors that there isn't going to be a pit orchestra, rather, that mr. davis is using canned music. personally, i feel as though our orchestra and band departments can do just as well as canned music, if not better. we did 'the mikado' last year, which was quite amazing. audience members said what made 'the mikado' so original and unique (other than the anime aspect of the show) was the fact that they had a pit orchestra that consisted entirely of students that went to blake. i feel showcasing the entire music department would be a great way to end the year. |
supposedly, mr. davis feels the music is "too hard" and that there are "too many key changes" and ... i don't remember the rest. psh, whatever.
so, if any of you here feel the same, i'd like you to talk to mr. davis about this. i figure that if we get enough people to say, 'hey, pit orchestras are the way to go, son!' then maybe he might decide to use what's right in front of him.
