Oops … before I forget, I want to mention that Friday at 7:00 Threeds will be at Joe’s Pub. Doors open at 6:00. You can read more here.

Today was a full day … again! The sounds of the convention are many and varied. The sounds in the vendor rooms rather amazing. I took my iPhone around and just captured them, so I’ll post that sometime soon, but right now I have to get to bed.

I attended the “Centennial Birthday Serenade in tribute to William H. Scheide” and was fascinated by the film I’m posting below, for a number of reasons. Maybe you can figure out why. Maybe not. 🙂

I am here. Soon performers will be as well. 🙂

Prior to lunch, and after the first recital, I heard both a Baroque ensemble and a jazz duo. There is a huge variety of music here. I love that!

I just heard a recital of new music by John Steinmetz. The first work was a duo for bassoons, with one playing contra on two of the four movements, and the other was a duet for oboe and bassoon. Musicians were tom Nugent on oboe, Nicolosa Kuster on bassoon and Margaret Philips on bassoon and contra. Bravi tutti to all!

I didn’t manage to get a photo after the first duet, but here’s one from after the second.
