Performances: A wedding on June 4th, but otherwise things are looking slim in the performance category until July. Lots of other things going on, though!
Rehearsals: Rehearsal for “Brass Lassie”, a pick-up group I am performing with at the Scottish Faire in July, on Friday. Looking forward to this!
Practicing: Music for the above (Brass Lassie rehearsal and Saturday’s wedding). Additionally, still adding tunes to my Tune Library!
Listening: My partner was in town this weekend and we went all in on the classical section of the used records at Electric Fetus. Scored a great recording of Elsa’s Procession by the Eastman Wind Ensemble, a Bernstein recording of Brahms 3, and many other greats.
Teaching: Good practice habits, as always, combined with utilizing learning styles and methods for good focus.
Studying: Grant preparation, doctoral recital repertoire, UMN entrance exams.
Relaxing: As I mentioned, my partner Jarel was in town this weekend. We saw a Lynx game, went to the Orchestra, visited Eloise Butler and the Quaking Bog, listened to records on a rainy day, and ate at some of my favorite Minneapolis restaurants. A great weekend that went too quickly.
