When I was in school we had a good orchestra and a good band and a good choir. So I thought we should have gotten together and played Beeethoven's 9th.

Oh yes, Beethoven's 9th is beautiful. I was lucky to play that just this year (I mean season), since it was near the end of 2007. It was very powerful. We performed it twice (one a very renowned hall too). It is admirable for the chorale, how they can stay up there for so long (all movements until the last), and stay steady and quiet! Then boom away. I was in the orchestra, not chorale. I also remember playing Beethoven's 7th, when I was back in school, and the slow movement is so sad and beautiful! Nostalgia.

That is hard. I played Spring when I was in highschool. Vivaldi is tricky but not impossible to play.Good Luck.

That is okay. Just pretend you can play, which piece of music would you want to play?

1. Aaron Copland's Clarinet Concerto. 616 measures of clarinety goodness. 2. John Barnes Chance's Incantation and Dance. 3. William Schuman's Chester Overture.

I always wanted to play "The Flight of the Bumble Bee," but my fingers were not that fast, and I was better at playing slow pieces. When I was young, our school took us to see a concert at the Vancouver City Orchestra once in a while, and that is how I got to love classical music. It was sure better than my mom's preference. She loved Broadway musicals and people doing ordinary things while dancing around, and they were not wearing those old fashioned costumes either.

I always wanted to sing 'O Mio Babbino Caro' and 'Un Bel Di', but I never got a chance to. I also always wanted to sing 'Der Holle Rache' (The Queen of the Night Aria), but it's so far out of my range it's not even funny!
