On Tuesday, my new ensemble, the Laptop Orchestra of Louisiana, held its very first full concert at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, LA. We wanted to have a friendly venue for trying out our new pieces, trying to figure out how to move about the stage, how to keep the software current on all the computers, etc.
As things go, it was pretty successful. The things we thought would go well did. The things we were unsure about still went pretty well. We still had an audience at the end, and they seemed to like it.
Many thanks to Jeremy Sagala for his help in organizing the event, and to the staff and students at SELU. We had a great time.
The LOL (as we like to call it) has it’s own web/blog, and we’ve posted some pictures from the concert. You can also follow the LOLs on Facebook and Twitter (@LaptopOrchOfLA)
