Unrelated To Knitting

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to pop in to let you all know that my university does this really cool thing where they stream all of the conservatory concerts online so that people off campus are still able to listen to the concerts.  If anyone is interested, though I doubt anyone is, you are able to access this through this website and you can listen to me play!  Tomorrow (Saturday) night my orchestra, along with the three choirs, are putting on a program of some of the most famous opera choruses and you are welcome to listen.  I'm sure you will recognize many of the tunes (Anvil Chorus, selections from Carmen, etc...).  The concert starts at 8pm and there is a pre-concert program beginning at 7:30 (central time.)

Next Friday I am also playing in a Wind Ensemble concert.  There are four pieces, one which features the director of percussion studies playing a piece for solo Tympani and Wind Ensemble (extremely impressive!) and a premiere of a piece composed by one of our theory/composition professors.

So, if you want something to listen to while doing your knitting or spinning over these upcoming weekends, you're welcome to tune in.  :)

  1. Thanks for the heads up! If I get back from a dinner out in time, I'll watch the show tonight. :) (I'm glad I live on the west coast!)

  2. Amended: I'm kind of a moron. I'll watch it *before* I go to dinner. And I'm still glad I live on the west coast...because your concert is *still* not playing right in the middle of dinner. I win either way!

  3. Oh, rats ... sorry I missed this. That'll teach me for getting behind on my bloglines. And I've got yoga next Friday. Sigh.
