A Reality of Midlife Music: Life Happens!

So here it is, eight months later, and nothing has been happening on the blog.  That’s because a lot has been happening in other parts of my life!

Baby Liam

Number One Excuse:  The arrival of my new grandson!   Liam made his appearance in February, and he’s the pride and joy of his parents and four happy grandparents.   So, Chuck and I have spent a lot of time collecting airline miles in service of the newest member of the family.

A few musical highlights:

  • Chuck has a concert on Sunday, May 5th at the Evola store in Canton at 2:00 p.m.  His New Horizons group has suffered some personnel changes and is looking for players.
  • I survived the Dvorak Symphony #8 under the direction of Nan Washburn with the OLPS Symphony in April.   I missed a lot of rehearsals because of Mr. Liam — but did my best.   We’re now in rehearsals for a pops concert.  (June 10th, 3:00 p.m. at the Berman.  Tickets are on sale now!)
  • Viola Judy and I are heading back to Baltimore in June for another “go” at BSO Academy.   At least two other musicians from Michigan will be joining us this year.
  • Had a chance to see Barry Douglas playing with the BSO in the fall, under the direction of Vasily Petrenko – the hottest young conductor in Europe.   Magnifico!

In all — apologies for being away so long.   More insights coming soon.
