Poor Piccalo…

A piccalo is just a smaller version of a flute that plays louder and an octave higher

At a football game on Friday, the Marching Band played during the game. Me and my fellow piccalo and clarinet players do a little jump thing before we go out on the field. But this time things didn’t turn out so well. My piccalo was accidentally knocked out of hand, the mouth piece landing 7 feet away from me! I quickly picked it up to inspect the damage. All seemed well until I tried to put it back to together again… The mouth piece wouldn’t go in, it was bent. When we got it slightly in, it got stuck. I had to fake the rest of the game or I would have been horribly out of tune. The very sorry fellow piccalo player and I showed it to our director and he took it home to see if it could unbend it. I really hope so. Poor Piccalo… :(
