Our church group only adds horns on special services, mostly Easter and Christmas. Other than these it is strings, piano and organ.
A couple weeks ago I commented to them that if I had some of the sheet music for their standards, I would practice up and maybe some day in the future be able to play with them. One thing leads to another, the musicians that would normally join them end up not being available, and now I am on to play with them this Sunday on Easter. They only had one practice, which I made it through with mixed success. It was the first time-ever- that I have played with another person, which I told them. Thankfully, the songs they are playing are very simple tunes and on some I only come in for the refrain. Increasingly nervous as the day approaches. On the plus side, a full congregation singing out of time and out of tune may be able to mask minor errors. May the Lord guide my tenor.
