For The Record

The template’s still under construction, so please bear with us. For every one thing that gets solved, there are a pile more still to be pinpointed, worked through, and a solution found.

Comment seem to be working for some people sometimes, not at all for others. No, I have no idea why it’s happening. Please keep trying, and let me know when something you try to post doesn’t appear.

The font in which the body of the entries is displayed seems to be all scrunched up for some people, not for others. I may have fixed this tonight; let me know, please! (Of course, if you’re trying to post a comment and are having issues as above, then you’ll have to e-mail me.)

I know there’s more, I just can’t think of it all at the moment. And because my computer time is limited, things aren’t going to be fixed overnight.

Concert Review!

We gave a brilliant all-Mozart concert last night! All of it was great, but I’m particularly pleased with the symphony we played in the second half. It’s full of dynamic changes and sixteenth-note runs that never seem to end, and I’m very proud of my own performance as well as that of everyone else. We nailed the final Presto movement beautifully. It was one of those “in the cello zone” times that happens now and again, where you realise that nothing’s going to go wrong and the whole thing’s just going to flow. And flow it did: I played those runs better than I’d ever played them. (Flow may not be the best word; that finale is like a freight train once it starts… it’s not stopping for anybody.)

Thanks go out to everyone who came by to be a member of the audience, those who attend every concert and those who came by for the very first time. I truly appreciate your support! We had about a hundred people there to hear us, and I know they all went home satisfied.

And since you’re all dying to know what we’re playing for Canada Day, I can tell you that there will be symphonic selections from Beethoven and Schubert and Mozart during the first half, and selections from twentieth century operettas and musicals for the second half. Followed, of course, by church bells and fireworks as always!
