Brett's Saxophone Solo (3/14/09)

Solo Ensemble at Martin Luther High School

Brett takes the GOLD!!! On Saturday, Brett performed his class C solo (Allegro from Concerto Grosso, Op. 3, No. 4, by George F. Handel) and earned a score of 1! He had trouble in the beginning with some squeeking. The judge said that it was because Brett needed a new reed. Brett should work on positioning the reed better. The judge was impressed with his fingering, and that he got all the notes correct. The judge was also pleased with how well Brett did with the piece after the squeeks. Brett stuck around to see his cousin Cyrus and his friend Karl both get a 1, too. Brett actually went in with each of them and applauded at the end of each of their solos!
