So I’m back to work today. The orchestra rehearsal (the one and only; all the rest are with singers) for Opera San José’s opening opera, Lucia di Lammermoor is this afternoon. I’m very happy to be getting back to work. A little apprehensive as well. Aside from the brief set I had with Merola, I’ve not played in a group since the Symphony Silicon Valley video game concert. That’s a long time ago now, and it was exactly a challenging bit of work, nor was it a “real” orchestra experience when it comes to playing. That concert was back in May. Merola ended on July 15, and I played the rather insignificant second oboe book on that.

I have to get my sea legs back. Or my A legs. Or some such thing.
