Back in 2009 I joined the San Francisco Symphony Community for some unknown reason. Since then I haven’t really looked over there. Today someone “friended” me there (who knew you could do that?) and saw another message from someone who works for San Francisco Symphony. Here’s what she wrote:

Hi Patty – I noticed you listed English horn as one of your instruments. A new group for horn players has just formed on the San Francisco Symphony social network – hope you’ll check it out and join the conversation!

Hah! I DO hope she has learned in these past two years that English horn isn’t related to French horn.

Too darn funny.


  1. Perhaps you should follow up with her to see if she’s Seen the Light yet. I would personally appreciate it.

  2. Maybe I should, eh? Of course maybe she’s not even with the symphony any longer. Hmm.
