Cool Going French for a month or two..

This is the first SPSO concert of the season. Although I have played with every player in this section, the four of us have never been in the same section before. Back row l-r, Steve Kyle, Larry Jones. Front row l-r, Kevin MacConnell, Ken Smith. This is the first concert using the Jacquet-Pillement in absence of the Marcucci that is still in restoration. The basses sounded great.

Lightbulb One more..

This is from about 1-2 years ago. Forgot about it as it's on the Orchestra's website so before they change their Pics, here it is. I am playing first stand with the light colored Kreutzer bass.

Default found one more..

I found the on the FB page of The Orchestra Society of Philadelphia. This is a reading orchestra only. This shot was from October 11, 2013. We did the Verdi Requiem that night and I played the solo (with cellos & chorus) on the Agnes Dei. I'm in the red shirt playing first principal bass. I recall using the Hart bass that night. I think it's the last time I played it before it was sold.

Default Marconcini goes to 'school'

That's me with the Marconcini bass in the Pit, bottom left. I mentioned this to one of the Luthiers I work with and he said "you're playing in the Pit with the "Marconcini"? .. Obviously Not approving of the environment for safety reasons. All was well. We did just 2 rehearsals and 3 performances. The bass is fine and back in the rack at my office. It sounded fantastic. My playing was "Ok"' as well.. lol

Lightbulb pics

Many of the pics came from other peoples pages and for some reason, they disappeared from here. Probably because I just copy and pasted them instead of making it a jpeg first. So, I deleted those pots from here that don't have the pics I was trying ti show and describe. Lesson learned.. (: Sorry..
