     Junior Brodie Busby played the string bass in Capital’s orchestra. He played the bass for 7 years. One of his favorite parts about the orchestra concert was how multiple groups merged together and played the same songs. There were four orchestra groups at Capital. Chamber, symphonic, sophomore, and electric orchestra.  

     “Orchestra is very calm and it’s easy to talk to peers,” Busby said.

Busby also liked to listen to other people playing music. Hearing other people’s achievements, especially the chamber orchestra because their music was much harder.

     “It’s fun when you have people to go and listen with, otherwise you can become easily enveloped in it,” Busby said.

Busby enjoyed playing in a larger group because you got a different, fuller, sound. It gave the song a more dynamic tone the more people they had, because people could play the same song with small changes and it would sound good when put together.

     “Just have fun, it’s not about the grade, it’s about having fun with your peers,” Busby said.

     When it came to Busby’s future in music, he just wanted to always better himself because there’s always someone better. He also wanted to learn more about playing jazzy bass.

     “I always want to become better, and learn more about what I do,” Busby said.

     Senior Hugo Weyand chose to play the viola because he thought it was unique. His main goal was just playing any instrument.  

     “Don’t become discouraged, music is intimidating, but beautiful,” Weyand said.

     Weyand had played the viola for a total of seven years. He wasn’t very knowledgeable on playing instruments until the elementary instrument instructors talked to his class about playing an instrument.  

     “There’s such a sense of community. You all play an instrument, you all read music, and those are things you can bond over,” Weyand said.

     Weyand was also contemplating playing in the band. He thought about it, but there were so many to choose from. He plans on learning other instruments as he goes forward such as clarinet and piano.  

    “When choosing an instrument, just choose the one that seems the most fun to you, because if you don’t like it you can always learn another,” Weyand said.

     Weyand said that, in the future, he wants to continue into college, along with learning other instruments, and writing/composition skills.  

     “I’m very hopeful for my future in music. I’d like to continue having fun with it,” Weyand said.
