I am writing this post as I put off studying for finals as I go into Exam week at OSU. I wanted to share a video that I just posted on YouTube. It is of the OSU Art Blakey Combo performing an arrangement I did of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. The two things I think you should take from this video are the 4 horn players (including myself) two stepping in the beginning, and the use of sleigh bells. (as played by Wes Perry). You can’t really tell but this was at a concert for over 1,500 people. The concert was a showcase of about twenty different musical groups from OSU, it changed styles pretty drastically; we were after a Bach Suite and a before a Wind Ensemble piece. The advertisements for the show said: Featuring over 300 Musicians and Vocalists…we were in the former category.
