    Gentle sight readers,

    We just got the brochure for next season and it looks like fun.

    Mahler 1, 3, 5

    Strauss Also Sprach Zarathustra
    Don Quixote
    Der Rosenkavalier

    Shostakovitch 10

    Brahms 1, 2, 3, 4

    Tchaikovsky 4 and 6

    Ravel Tombeau de Couperin
    Bolero
    Daphnis and Chloe complete
    La Valse

    Beethoven 2, 7 and 9

    Bruckner 8

    Sibelius 1 and 4

    Stravinsky Petrushka
    Firebird Suite

    Dvorak 8

    Debusy Iberia

    Adams Tromba Lontana


    Obviously there's more but I figured that's the stuff that would get y'all hot and bothered. I think if you want to plan a road trip and come on out here you can check out the web site and get precise dates.

    Recordings for next year will be only the 9th of Beethoven. This year we're doing 3 and 8 in June.

    The fourth/utility trumpet matter is yet to be settled but I hope it will be soon.

    Gotta get back on stage... see ya.

    Yee HAW!
    Manny, get a laptop with wireless. Then you won't have to wait until offstage to post messages!.... just type away during the rests! (and sips of Chivas Regal handed to you by your on-stage butler) :D


    (make sure that the keyboard is a silent one though!).


    I sure wish our director would tell us ahead of time what he's going to have the librarians pull! We've got a concert in May with James Walker (flute, LA Philharmonic, Academy Awards, Tonight Show, NY Philharmonic) and only one chart has been distributed so far!

    Sounds like you're in for a fun season.

    One question - do the MO ever do online broadcasts, like say the NY Phil do?

    I can't wait to hear Tromba Lontana by John Adams, it is one of my favorite pieces. Mahler 3 will be fun to hear as well!

    I just love my new compute with the CD burner. I have managed to get a few live broadcasts burned onto CD's. And boy do they sound great.....

    :-)
