I spent the entire day at UCSC. I met with oboists, and then listened to the orchestra auditions for woodwinds and brass. I’m pretty darn tired, but it was great to see and hear some fine players.

I did a stupid thing, though: I neglected to get all the oboists who played for me to give me their email info! Oh dear! I’ve managed to locate all but one. (So Mr. Specht, if you read this blog, please contact me!) We had the largest turnout of oboists ever. How exciting is that?!

Tomorrow SSV begins, and I move from principal oboe and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin to English horn and Ellington’s River Suite and selections from Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet Suites 1, 2 and 3. A wee bit of a change, don’t you think?
