The Symphony, comprised mostly of ASU students and alumni, concentrates on performing well-known and relevant orchestral music.

This word, “relevant”, I do not understand what it means.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek. Auuuuuuuuk.

No, I wasn’t killing a chicken. I was trying to play my oboe.

I played the oboe in the junior high school band.

This story was pretty fun to read. Check it out.

From the way it’s written — he does use his real name when he talks to the band director — I’m thinking it might be true.

If you can knock out two flawless etudes, break off a dazzling solo and nail a representative sampling of standard orchestral excerpts – all under the withering scrutiny of the school’s famously demanding faculty — you stand a chance of playing Juilliard football in the fall of 2011. With more musical prodigies per square inch than perhaps anywhere else on earth, Juilliard is the last place one would expect to have a football program. But in just two years, the fabled Juilliard campus will fill with the sounds of Chopin, Mozart and the violent cacophony of helmets colliding in ¾ time.

I read it here, and then did a search and found that this is from a 2008 article. And no, it’s not dated April 1.

But really?

Heh … no. Not really. ;-)

But maybe they’ll start a synchronized swimming team …?

I have to play the oboe in a concert in 2 weeks. I usually smoke electronic cigarettes but I ran out of liquid and was smoking real cigarettes for about a week. How long will it take for my lungs to get back to working like normal if I’ve stopped right now (able to play a long concert on the oboe)?

Until just now I had never heard of electronic cigarettes before. Bizarre.
