When I watched this video I was immediately transported back a few years to the APU Celebrate Christmas productions I participated in during Undergrad. Even though I complained about having to play in the orchestra for the entire 3 hour event, those are some memories I'll never forget.
In my opinion, the best part about making music is making it with others. Ensemble playing (or ensemble singing) is the best feeling in the world. I wish every person in the world could experience it. Yeah, practicing alone in a small room for hours on end isn't fun, but when you join with the rest of the group, it is all worth it!
