I’m selling two tickets to the show “Manon” at the california theatre in san jose. Fyi this is an opera show.

They’re for opening night, in case anyone is interested. I just giggled a bit at “opera show”. 😉

Cacophony. Oboe upstairs, piano down.

There is nothing like a symphony orchestra to reveal deficiencies in a player’s frequency response.

Okay … did you just read that like I did at first? The blogger is talking about an iPod … not a musician! 😎

I have been having an email interview with Daniel Wolf, over at Renewable Music, about composing for oboe. You can read what I think … and then you can come back here and argue with me as long as you’re registered. (And if you have ever played piccolo oboe do tell!)

Note: I do require a real name for registration. Recently an anonymous blogger tried to register, but when I wrote to ask for his/her name I received no response. Ah well. I think the person wanted to comment on something I said regarding his/her blog, but I guess he/she wasn’t about to come clean and hand me a name.

You get the idea … I just want to put everyone to work here. To save me time. That’s how lazy I can be. (And on Labor Day, too! Seems like I should be laboring on labor day. Hmmm.)

Or maybe it’s really just that I want you all to drop me a line …?!
