Between playing some great music with Symphony Silicon Valley and then heading to Yosemite for a quick trip it was quite a wonderful weekend! I’ll post more later, but first I have a bit of work to do.

Many thanks to Bob Shomler for sending me this photo below. Pictured, left to right: Beth Zare, Meredith Brown, Pamela Hakl, and yours truly. We are playing Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante K. 364 (for Violin, Viola and Orchestra).

If I get some time later on I’ll post a Yosemite photo or two. We’ll see!


  1. Where do you stay in Yosemite? A bit chilly for camping…

  2. I don’t camp, so even if it had been warmer you wouldn’t catch me in a tent! We stayed in Mariposa, at a Best Western there. It was adequate. (Not dirt cheap, but I wasn’t on the dirt ground, either!)
