I’m getting a fairly steady trickle of chamber music at the moment. I need to take a moment to appreciate that fact because it kind of snuck up on me while I was focusing on having to play in orchestra for another week and the weekend chamber music getaway I can’t do because of orchestra. I’ve made good on my vow to be more proactive on the organizing front & between that, my regular group (2x/month) and last minute invites, this week & next week are all set. Things get a little trickier in July when my new violist of choice goes on vacation… it might be back to square one, but I’m at music camp for a week then anyway. Along those lines, I actually started looking at the viola clef this week... but I think it’ll be a long time before I actually attempt to try playing it in a group.
Broken record time- I also have to kick up my sight-reading practice. I’m having a blast with my chamber music get-togethers and doing a better job of the sight-reading would enhance the experience a thousand-fold.
