With my community band Spring Concert just a few days away it’s no wonder I’m having this dream.
The concert started and we finished the first song. I put it away and reached for the second piece but it wasn’t there. The band started playing and I was frantically searching my folder for the pages I needed. Nothing!
The third song started and still I had no music. My solo was coming up. Did I have it memorized? NO!
Finally I woke up before things got really bad. It was one of those dreams where you say to yourself out loud, “That sucked!”
A few days later…
OMG it almost came true! The concert was going on and we were playing a piece with a big solo coming up. I turned the page and…it was missing!!! Panicked, I flipped through the remaining sheets but couldn’t identify it. I was having a major flashback and freaking out. No. I didn’t have it memorized. I was screwed! I hoped to god that the 2nd chair player had the same part. She did! I reached over and turned her stand a little bit toward me. She knew what happened. I was just in time to start playing the solo. Whew! That would have sucked most royally. Between pieces, I continued my search and found it hiding inside another song. That’s what nightmares are made of.
I don’t usually have prophetic dreams but this one was spot on.
