… all in one weekend.

Tomorrow I meet with SSV folks for the first time this season. I really enjoy getting to do something like this park concert before we get back on stage. It’s just a less stressful way to begin. We perform in the park on Sunday afternoon, and then I have about an hour and a half between that and the San José Chamber Orchestra Opera! concert. (The singers sound great!)

Here’s the symphony’s free concert info that I just found at another site (always good to see others posting this news:

Sounds as if the SJCO concert is nearly sold out, so if you want to go to that (7:00 Sunday evening) better get tickets quickly!
