Reading: Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain, Oliver Sacks
Arranging: Da Pacem Domine, by Arvo Pärt. Originally for choir, I am transcribing it for Metro Brass’s 11-piece lineup. We will be performing it on June 4th. Concert Details.
Practicing: Red Dragonfly, Annie Laurie, chromatic scale patterns, sight-reading
Rehearsing: Metro Brass had a great rehearsal Sunday night.
Performing: No gigs currently booked until May.
Listening: Have had a little break from consuming anything new, musically. Taking in the sounds of spring as it develops instead.
Teaching: Preparing folks for contest performances as well as upcoming auditions.
Relaxing: The Garden is open again! For those who don’t know, I volunteer at Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden in Theo Wirth Park. It’s my favorite place on the PLANET (besides my bed) and you should defintely come visit if you haven’t ever been, or if it’s been a while. Right now, the spring ephemerals are coming up- don’t blink or you’ll miss them!
