Well, it was a puzzle which cost me some mental effort, but I have at last scheduled the rehearsals. I think I'll wait a day or so before hopping onto the ballet.

Love your voicings :)

Thursday was our first church choir rehearsal of the season; feels good to be back in the swingopf things.

Tonight, our first Triad rehearsal for the November concert.

Good to see you posting in the HQ again, Karl. I noticed the three week absence.

Cheers, Sarge! Gradual progress. The arm is doing better and better. The fingers are slower to come back, but we'll win them over, too!


We begin rehearsing A Heart So White a week from Wednesday!

Great Triad rehearsal last night. I'm conducting two pieces for this concert. My friend Pam Marshall's Grand Grand Mother Is Returning, and Long Pond Summer by Elena Ruehr, who teaches at MIT. We read the latter, last night, and for a first reading, it was pretty good.

Ting in with the Whitman centenary, the piece of mine on this program is A Song of Remembrance, which read very nicely last night. Love this group!




I saw both Sudie & Amanda, too, they're both working on A Heart So White. I was especially grateful for Amanda's remark that the piece will be "killer."

Thanks. Great therapy session today, and another wonderful rehearsal. We started this cycle out in good shape, and now it's starting to really cook.
And, we have found a second concert date!

Another excellent therapy session today.

And I am back into the rhythm of things in this, too: I got program notes to Heinrich for Tuesday's concert.

Program went very well. A good number of listeners, the music was well received. One lady told me she found A Heart So White "powerful."

No video of today's concert, but we are repeating the program twice, so I think we will get a video document in November. Pam made an audio recording today.
