Thanks, everyone, I really appreciate the moral support. In the end, I resorted to massive editing. We had dress rehearsal this morning and I managed all but 2 “spots.” I finally got a chance to see the conductor’s score and made a bunch of markings which will hopefully keep me from missing my final lick in the fast movement with all the meter changes. Now that I have worked out a solution that I can actually almost play, I don’t want to MISS IT!!! By golly.
I really need to learn how to use music software, thanks for the suggestion. The part is now pretty illegible, but at least I am used to it…
Thank you, HC buddies, I do appreciate you!
PS – I am making a note, on the front of the harp part, that the piece will require several months to learn and will require extensive editing. I also marked approximate tempi for all movements. If no one erases it, that should at least help the next harpist….
Can’t wait for next week – DEBUSSY AND RAVEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
