Hello Manny (and everyone else). We're doing Appalachian Spring this week and I was wondering if you had any advice on how to get the section from 48 to 49 to be precise. The conductor is in 2 and I keep getting thrown by the strings (and everything else). From the recordings I've heard (lots of them) tihs seams to be a pretty common problem. On a second note, the only time I've ever gotten a chance to hear you live you guys played this...and the Mozart oboe concerto with Copland 3 on the second half. What a great orchestra you have. Do those sound shields ever bother you all? Just curious. Que estes bien.
