Karl has reported that he will attend a TRIAD Choir rehearsal this morning! 

I find that to be very encouraging news!  0:)

Actually a workshop/performance at Curry College.
In the workshop, I did do a little singing and sight reading, which was rather rough on my part, but nevertheless felt great.
The Curry College Choir and Triad shared the concert after the workshop. And the men of Triad sang It Might Happen Today. Triad founding member David Harris,
Who had served as a clinician during the workshop joined Triad for this, and actually basically site Reddit for the performance, which is one of the bravest things I think I've known any singer to do. Two Tenors who have joined Triad since the November concerts also sang the piece. It was very gratifying to be there, I was the recipient of many many warm hugs.

This is the as-yet-tentative program for Triad's spring concerts:

It will be interesting to see if they go forward with programming It Might Happen Today, again.
In general, they want to, because it is felt that we can do an even better job than on the November concerts.

Innocence
*Julian Bryson--To Youth
Karl Henning--It Might Happen Today (or another TB piece, still looking)

Love
Chen Yi--A Set of Chinese Folk Songs (Fengyang Song, The Flowing Stream, Thinking of My Darling)

Poetry
Avrohom Leichtling--Madrigals, Book III:  2. Song of Derivations and 4. A Comparison... (MIDI)

History (Politics?)
Charles Turner--Madrigals (The Queen's History)
Julian Bryson--e pluribus unum (Hope Like Gold)

ca. 24 minutes

Intermission

Meditation
Karl Henning--Alleluia

Nature
*Saunder Choi--Vere Novo (Soprano/Alto Only)
*Pamela Marshall--Songs from a Quaker Heart (Life in Conjunction, Leaves, Spring Sunlight)
Charles Turner--Madrigals (It Is Snowing)

Wind
Charles Turner--Madrigals (Not Only Leaves)
*Eric Whitacre--Little Man in a Hurry (Bootlegged Draft Score)

ca. 25 minutes

* denotes pieces with piano accompaniment

There is also room for 1 or 2 solos, so if you have something that would fit the theme of Madrigals and would provide a nice contrast somewhere along the way, let me know!  I suggest that preference go to those who didn't sing a solo on our last concert, but all suggestions are welcome.



If you absolutely hate this, let me know ASAP!  I'm always open to suggestions.

Good OT session this morning. , the therapist confirmed what I have been feeling over the weekend: that the left arm is doing better with extension and that I've been getting more motion out of the left fingers

As yet that remains futurism, my hand is not yet able even to assemble the clarinet. However, I have been thinking about making some plaintive noises on a cheap recorder that I have around

Baby steps!  "Plaintive noises" could be right up there with - YES! - atonal honking!    0:)

When was the last time GMG had a good "atonal honking" debate?!   ;)

Half of my OT this morning was exercise with clips and clothespins, and flipping playing cards. This went much better today than the last time, both in terms of the fingers cooperating, and the hand functioning as a whole. And tomorrow I'll have another great session with the electric stim, and I'll make even more progress over the weekend.
