Damian belongs to the Joshua Tree Philharmonic, and this weekend we will go hear them play excerpts from Phantom of the Opera.... my favorite play, ever. I'm really looking forward to it! The orchestra started as a "junior" philharmonic, children only. But, as adults in the community found out about it, people started asking if they could play too. Gradually, more and more adults joined, till now, it's mostly adults, but still all amateurs. It's a great chance for Damian to play his upright bass in a more classical setting. He does lots of bowing instead of plucking, which is a nice change, I'm sure. Here's a photo of the orchestra. Damian is standing on the right with his bass.
