I once took a photo shoes worn by the oboe and flute sections of the opera to show the differences between us. My flute pitpals were wearing shiny strappy, high heeled kinds of shoes. My oboe colleague and I were wearing plain and simple flats. Now I realize not all oboists and flutists are like that, but I joke about the fancy flutes and plain oboes a lot.

… and now here’s a video that perhaps shows you the difference between singers and oboists, and maybe explains why I had to race out and find a top to wear to a fancy “Hollywood style” party last night because I sure didn’t have anything in the closet that would work for that! (But no, not all oboists wear jeans when performing.)

We have our first rehearsal soon. So how about some music? This is Irene Dalis, singing “Condotta, ell’era in ceppi” according to the YouTube info. Cool!
