Performance day, from an insider

Graduate student Henry Darragh wrote a short piece for the University of Houston Daily Cougar about last week’s performance. It’s a view from the inside as a student performer in the MSM Jazz Orchestra, and it’s quite entertaining! Here’s a highlight:

The Moores School Jazz Ensemble is the department’s second biggest band, and in the past few years has gotten so good that it plays a full set to open up for the jazz concerts. I have consumed lots of Topo Chico by this point and added to the iced coffee, I had to make this tough decision: last-minute (literally) bathroom run. I make this decision contingent on the fact that the solo section of the MSMJE’s last tune is long enough to allow me to run down the hall before our downbeat.
