"Chip's Lament"

From the musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, this clip shows some quick 2 beat show groove, with some odd time signatures thrown in, just to keep things interesting.  I used the triangle machine up over the high hat to avoid having to change mallets in this fast paced number.  In addition, the timpani parts I assigned to the MalletKat, towards the end, so that I could also play the drum kit parts simultaneously. The orchestra was literally in a "closet", on stage right......

Recorded live at the Cabrini University Theater, Wayne, PA
