Oboeinsight has slowly been disappearing. Not literally, of course, but the number of posts has diminished tremendously. I keep it running only because there are a handful of people who occasionally check it out, and I know there is one person who visits on Sundays for the music. (Hi, dear sister!) I won’t be taking it down completely. Yet. But I do apologize to those of you who used to find it entertaining. I just haven’t had much I’ve wanted to write about here that I haven’t written about before!

I had thought about writing a “Yes, I can see you” post about the one orchestra member who sat, expressionless, while others applauded a conductor. Some orchestra members were moved to tears, so this one person was rather obvious. But I decided to skip it.

Oops. I guess I just wrote about that!

I thought about writing about the brass players who whisper to each other during performances when they don’t have anything to play, distracting both orchestra and audience members, but opted not to.

Oops. Too late again!

And to that one player who sings along, again during performances, well, that’s just plain tacky. And extremely distracting. And rude.

But I’ll skip all that. Who needs the negativity?

Okay … goofy rambling aside, I’d say I’d try harder to keep this up and running, but I think I’m just running out of steam. So it goes ….
