Here’s a new way to pass the time on a two-show day. On 8/5/17, we had Clarinet Ligature Day at the Broadway show, Anastasia. The woodwind section (Rick Heckman, Dan Sullivan and I) experimented with ligatures to find which ones yielded the best results for us in the pit. Mouthpiece Day & Reed Day to follow. Sometimes, focusing on equipment alternatives can help you negotiate a show after playing it for the 200th time!
