Get advice and support on how to Attend a performance at Opera San Jose, and other life goals.

Sooo … what are your life goals? I’m just betting that they include attending OSJ. Right? Well, you are in LUCK, friends. Tomorrow night is opening night of Barber of Seville. You know you wanna be there.

I know I’ll be there.

And yes, I really DID read this online. At some spam sort of site that I won’t link to.

Okay, the cd came and it isn’t what was posted in the message. Instead it is oboe music which doesn’t exactly make my knee socks roll up and down. It’s a freebie so what can I say?

(And happy birthday to my bassoon playing brother Timothy!)

Suite #3, BWV 1009, Allemande
Tateshina Bassoon Quartet

I hate the oboe in Sonny & Cher’s ‘I Got You Babe’. There’s probably a reason its the first and last time its sound is heard in a pop song.
