By George I think she's got it.

After this weekend’s round of concerts, I am definitely quitting orchestras #2 & #3. I usually come to that conclusion this time of year when my work & concert schedule team up to leave me wishing for just enough of a sore throat to justify taking a sick day.

I have succeeded in cutting back in the past, but I end up back-sliding when one of the other groups programmes something I just can’t resist (I’m a sucker for Brahms). But I’ve had my fill & this time I think it’ll stick. The difference is that now I have more of a reason to leave… not to mention less of a reason to stay. Orchestra #1 is far & away the best in the bunch & I get less & less enjoyment from playing in these other groups. Meanwhile orchestra has become less of a priority now that I’m finally doing more chamber music, and with a little more effort… & time, I could be doing more.
