It’s 11:20 PM and I’m already home! Nice, eh? Our rehearsal that was scheduled from 6:30 to 11:30 got out early.

I’m so relieved.

This was a very long day, due to some family stuff, then symphony, and then the rehearsal. And of course it feels as if it’s an hour later than it is because of the time change. So I’m pretty darn tired.

Tomorrow I have two rehearsals. Work continues. (As does “playing” of course!)

The concert today went well, although I had a difficult time focussing. This whole time change thing is for the birds. Or maybe for no living thing at all. But oh well, no one asked me about it.

I’m still trying to figure out why.

Personally, I think the audience should applaud for the oboist who gives the ‘A’ rather than the concertmaster, who only walks out without falling off the stage!

I’m with him. Excellent idea! You can read the entire article here.
