Summer Break?!?!?!

June 20, 2009 at 2:36 AM

This summer is shaping up to be a musically busy one.  After completing the viol-a-thon for the HBA "Night Court" rehearsals and shows, the viola-sprint is about ready to start.  First up is a subbing gig with the Houston North Symphony (another local community orchestra).  I have 2 rehearsals and then the concert in two weeks.  We are playing a Beethoven and Mendelssohn piano concerto and Britten's "Young Person's Guide to the Symphony".  After that is a performance (time TBD) of Handel's Sonata for 2 violas at the church.  And finally, Interlochen's Adult Chamber Music Camp in August.  That will end just in time to begin rehearsals at Houston Civic once again.  And I've also decided to take on piano lessons over starting next week.  I figured since I have one, I should learn how to play it.  

At least July is shaping up to only be consumed with my day job.  Maybe then I will have a bit of time to focus on technique.  I need to win the lottery....
