Come one, come all, to the Central Jersey Symphony Orchestra! Your last chance to see conducting phenomenon Michael Avagliano on the podium! Tickets going fast! Mention this ad and get two tickets for the price of one!

Seriously, though, if anyone is interested in coming to our concert tomorrow night, it's at 8 p.m. at Bridgewater High School. Directions are on our website, http://www.cjso.org

The program is called "Second Impressions", and includes Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto no. 2 and Brahms' Symphony no. 2. Incidentally, I found out that this is the same program that Philadelphia is opening their 2005-06 season with. Just remember, you heard it here first!

It's strange to think that I won't conduct a concert again after tomorrow night. I've found that I really like conducting; it's incredibly exciting and humbling to approach the orchestra as a single instrument. It also amazes me that with a wave of my hand, I can bring 60 musicians into unison or bring us all to a grinding halt when I screw up. What a rush! And what a responsibility. I've gotten more gray hairs in the last few months than I care to admit. But as of Monday, I go back to being a member of the orchestra and the board, albeit with a little more involvement in the planning side of things.

Just so you know: Tomorrow, 8 pm, Bridgewater High School. If you say you saw it on Violinist.com, admission is buy one-get one free!
