It has been a while...I am taking a vaca from the oboe for a couple weeks, not really intentional but it has been kinda nice! Of course, I have to get back in the groove now, big happenings coming up. But tonight I had my first quartet rehearsal - one of the ringers was an hour late so I rang her part, very fun! I was attempting to teach everyone how to ring 4 in hand, which is not something I really know how to do! But they did a great job - actually way better than I had expected.
Got my music for La Cage today, looking forward to getting started on that, but not for another month! I can't believe we got the books so early. Also got the contract for Fireworks concert in July, one of my favorite things to do all year!
