final concert

the University Orchestra had its final performance this week.
we've been practicing every Wednesday night all semester long, 
and my absolute favorite piece that we played was
the 3rd and 4th movement of Beethoven's 5th symphony. 
the build up between the end of the 3rd and the beginning of the fourth is seriously electrifying! 

playing these movements, especially at the moment that we enter into the 4th, just makes me want to burst with joy (though not literally -- that could hurt), but any sort of smiling while playing totally ruins embouchure, so I abstained. 
 it's just hard not to feel exuberant while playing such a classically good piece.

you can't see it (or maybe a little?), but I have major French horn lip here. 
thank you, mouthpiece.
