My guess is the poor oboist had an “event” like my oboe student in the blog entry just prior to this one!

This information naturally delighted everyone in the audience, particularly those of us who’d noticed the original oboist flee the stage after the first few measures of Wagner’s Overture to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and had wondered what was on her mind. (RTWT)

Ya think?

I’ve never had this happen, but I have had to run out during rehearsals. Flu happens. (I foolishly ran in and out of the rehearsal until my colleagues begged me to leave; I had neglected to think about them. Nice of me, eh? But if we don’t play, there is no pay. And sometimes that income is so darn necessary!)
