I decided that I would update this once in a few days. This is based on my own orchestra experience as an assistant principal. XD I don't own Inazuma Eleven.
And while I fangirl over Yukimura and Fubuki, you guys can go ahead and read this~
Sakuma waited for the Tuning A from the woodwinds section, tightening his bow impatiently, resisting the urge to pluck the strings of the cello settled snugly between his knees.
The A came, and the Teikoku Auditorium was filled with the thick harmony of tuning instruments, the final testing of reeds, mouthpieces, percussion instruments, string instruments.
Sakuma nervously wiped his sweaty palms on his school trousers, before readjusting his grip on his bow, testing out his cello.
Nothing was out of tune.
Everything was fine.
The Teikoku Full Orchestra is silent once more, and their conductor was in place. Sakuma tried to stop himself from freaking out, but his mind raced on its own. What if he played a wrong note? What if he missed a bar? Or what if he started early? He was being the principal cellist here! What if his fellow cellists messed up? What if he messed up? He would ruin everything!
A girl – the MC of the evening, stepped onto the stage into the spotlight. She smiled, giving a small bow before starting to speak. "Good evening to our Headmaster, teachers, parents and fellow schoolmates. We are extremely glad that you're here for Teikoku Academy's Annual Orchestra Performance. This year, we will be performing to you Beethoven's one and only Violin Concerto. Our solo violinist will be a special guest… Can anyone guess who he is?"
Sakuma stared down at the audience. He spotted Genda up in the front row next to his parents. Genda waved and grinned at him, and he smiled back weakly, heart still jolting nervously in his chest.
"He is our former concertmaster… Kidou Yuuto-kun from Raimon Junior High! May we invite him on stage!"
The audience erupted into cheers at the mention of the former principal first violin, who came walking up the stairs to the stage calmly, clad in Raimon's uniform, goggles flashing in the lights, his violin clamped under his right shoulder, bow in hand.
The conductor shook hands with the dreadlocked boy warmly, who nodded respectfully at the old man before standing next the conductor's platform, facing the audience. He tested out his A confidently, before nodding at the conductor to signal that he was ready.
At the last few seconds before the concerto began, Kidou looked over at Sakuma, giving him a reassuring smile before lifting his violin to his shoulder.
Sakuma's frenzied heartbeats calmed at his ex-captain's smile, and he plucked up his courage, raising his bow for the first note of the movement.
So. How's this? Please review and tell me what I can do to improve!
And yeah I'm a cellist in the local orchestra. Concerts are scary. [insert scared kitty face] Thanks for reading! I love you all~
