One of the musically interesting things about Jack, who sang in choirs and choruses from his teen years, is that (when his voice broke, that is) he started out as a bass, but his range migrated up.

Well, Triad are kind of regrouping.  We've lost more members than the normal annual attrition, did not make up those losses in the auditions, we've considered changing rehearsals from weekly on Monday evenings to a series of weekend "rehearsal-retreats," but it looks like we need to reconsider the November program.  Emergency meeting tonight.  Not truly a dire emergency, but a matter of enough importance that I eschewed scare-quotes.  Will report.

Oh, and this is super trippy.  Something which (a) I thought was somehow lost (via various hard drives going phut of the years) forever, and yet (b) which in the back of my mind I thought I would never miss, has resurfaced:  the symphonic band arrangement of the Egyptian Dance from White Nights.  Found it in an obscure directory from some long-ago migration.  And my heart is all a-flutter, because I am planning to go to a rehearsal for the Charles River Wind Ensemble tomorrow night.

This can be no coincidence . . . .
