"Adrenalin will help us onstage but won't do everything for us. Make sure we are still really focused 25 minutes into our concert." - Tiffany Hitz, Band Director at Mark Twain Middle School in Alexandria, VA
This was a comment my wife made to her band last summer at the UNCG Summer Band Camp. I think this is great advice for us grown-up kids as well. I have never had trouble focusing during the first tune of a Boston Brass show. But what about the 5th?
Adrenalin is an asset in any performance but must not be relied upon to maintain focus?
