Hallway Musician

I am thrilled out of my mind to be a hallway musician in a local children’s hospital soon. What exactly is that? Well, I’m parked in a public area, rather than a patient’s room, and will be playing soothing flute music for one hour in one area, and then for another hour in another area of the hospital. If that sounds nebulous, I haven’t been there yet and don’t know what to expect. Have flute, will travel 🙂

This will be happening in SEVEN days. I have 3 flutes that I haven’t really touched in months. I have a new iPhone that I’m not altogether familiar with yet. So…I need to set up iTunes, buy downloadable background tracks and a speaker, and then gain some experience with operating this technology. Did I mention that I need to WRITE the melody and harmony parts, practice them, and then synch that up with this new technology – in seven days?? Nothing like a little pressure to get going. But this is something I REALLY want to do and just can’t wait. 

Monster flute. Actually, it’s called a bass flute.

Deep breath. Feel the room spinning. Ahhhhh
