T minus 4 hours....

until the Mahler concert. It's crunch time.

Note to self: Don't suck. You're sitting dangerously close to the front, so the conductor can probably hear you.

Another note to self: Regardless of whether it sucks or not, get really really drunk afterwards: either way, you've gotten Mahler 5 under your fingers in 3 rehearsals.

EDIT: Mahler 5 is over, and it went pretty well! And, of course I didn't get drunk, but if I had, I think I would have been totally justified.
