Your optimism overwhelms me.

You mean, they may be late?  I expect you are right.

But, I did submit a score!  They cannot turn me down, if I do not send  8)

This must be the tenth piece I have sent to a call in 2018.  So, I consider the act of sending a piece, optimism enough.  On the other hand, there is no reason why this piece should fare any better than the other nine.

Although I am keen to swap in the superior audio, here are previews from Sunday's concert.

The piece I conducted;  composer Michael Veloso attended, and he was warmly complimentary about the performance:

Re: Henning's Headquarters: Karl is in the Hospital!

Greetings Everyone!

I just happened to check FaceBook and Karl's wife Maria Bablyak had a post from c. 3 hours ago (i.e. between 1:30 and 2:00 P.M. E.S.T.) that says "Please pray for Karl: he has been taken to the hospital."

No other information yet: she has been in Washington D.C. working in a new venture there.  So I am not sure if she is back in Boston for Thanksgiving, or what is happening.

He had lost 30 pounds this year, and was happy to be close to 200 pounds!

I will monitor his wife's FaceBook page and my e-mail for updates!

Also watching Facebook. If she was in D.C. Maria may be traveling now.

Yes, I would assume so.

Four hours since she asked for prayers!  Maria's mother lives with them, but it is unclear whether she is in D.C. or in Boston.

Maria Bablyak, Karl's wife, just told me that he had a stroke today!

She added:

Thank you, everyone. Karl is in intensive care now. Doctors told me they will be able to give some more definitive information in 24 hours. Your prayers and good wishes are very important and very much appreciated. Thank you

Maria Bablyak was not in Boston, but in D.C.  She is on her way back right now.

Karl has a good number of brothers and sisters, so there should be all sorts of family help for Maria.

Right when Karl had enjoyed some of the best-received concerts in his career, and was looking forward to more!

Since Karl's wife is en route back to Boston, probably we will hear nothing more until tomorrow.  I will keep checking anyway for a few more hours.

This is so melancholy!
