We finished up the run of Lucia di Lammermoor this afternoon. I really do think this was one of our best runs. Maybe I’m wrong (Who? Me?), but it just felt right, the singers were strong, and, well, I had fun! (It is about the oboe, right?) Our audiences were all enthusiastic … more than I’ve ever seen, actually.

So with opera over, I can focus entirely on the symphony set. I have a recital coming up as well, where I’ll be playing English horn on Copland’s Quiet City. That is just going to have to wait until I’m done with principal oboing this week. (Yes, “oboing” is a word. My invention. Nice, eh?)

Before the start of symphony I begin at UCSC. I’m actually looking forward to the week. Beginnings are nice!
