Absences

My laundry list of doctor appointments continues to grow, and this necessitates two more absences this week. I am sorry.

Making Choices

I’m starting to think that I have bitten off more than we can chew for the Spring Concert. This week will be about evaluating that; especially when it comes to playing American Overture and Esprit de Corps on the same concert.
