July is always a busy month:
From assisting the summer-intensive Arts In Action Camp at the Hochstein School of Music & Dance, to performing with the incredible team over at Blackfriars Theatre for their production of A Chorus Line, this summer is sure to be a hit. Although I have played this show before, it wasn't until my last run a couple months back for Avenue Q that allowed me to take a step back and figure out what it is that I could do to better prepare for a show!
As a freelance musician, you just never know when and where the opportunity to play will arise! So naturally, you always have to keep your eyes peeled for opportunities and always be prepared for those last-minute gigs that put your sight-reading skills to the ultimate test.
So today, I have curated a list of my top essentials to carry along for any and all performances (particularly for pit orchestras).
