Anyone who cannot play properly can be replaced. Andrew Thomson, Paris The boring answer is that music notation is just not comprehensive or accurate enough to be unambiguously turned into music by a group of players. Selby and the Charleston County School of the Arts Symphony Orchestra are preparing for a concert and for an upcoming state competition. That phrase repeats, and then the four-note motif goes through its first metamorphosis, and becomes not three repeated notes, but in the treble, two repeated notes, and descending eighth note and then the downbeat note. Are they ready to invest the performance with something new, something magical that will send shivers down your spine? Inspired maybe—infused with feeling and energy—but not empowered.

There is no bass note to tell us whether we are in the key of E-flat major or in C-minor. Again, you accomplish this by phrasing the notes with a little hitch between the parts. Yet the students are tackling it with surprising determination and proficiency.
