Concert day part 2. My orchestra always plays two concerts in a row, one at Schonell (last week) and one somewhere else. Somewhere else this week was just northwest of Brisbane, a little community called Mt Mee. We've been playing here now for about 12 or 13 years. It's always a sell-out and we don't need to advertise. The community always provides a fabulous afternoon tea too.
It is a hobby, but we take it pretty seriously. People pay their money to come and listen so it is work too to make sure we put on the very best day we can.
We get about 40 mins break between the sound check and concert time so I've made a habit of having a picnic lunch (of sorts) across the road. It is so country but just an hour away from the city...

The new bus driver took us in an interesting direction. We almost didn't get there. But once we got there, it was a lovely day. It is a lovely community that could teach us much about living, in a community way. I hope we get up there again next year. (There's a rumour mill going, but far be it from to to say anything...)
