May 18 - The Days Line Up
Harriet out early to meet John Bilotta re Fresh Voices costuming, so there's morning orchestration (page 12) of The Creation: IV. and another sheet composed for Vespers: IX. Audi Coelum (Part 2 - Sextet), before strolling towards
ash, to Diablo Valley College, where Brandon does a nice Latin-American triplet dictation, Daniel his own song for a second write-it-down-as-you-hear-it, and Julie checking in with
Leonard Bernstein's brilliant Make Our Garden Grow from Candide for board harmony.
Lunch in the re-emerging light of
Namaste, finishing the grading one set of Music History papers
against the reflection
highrises, plus a quick visit to
Bay Books, before returning to
a familiar haunt
(again) for scoring a second batch. The night class proceeds from Guido Haazen, Little Richard, and George Crumb, to Philip Glass, the Beatles, Pink Floyd, and the Police,
with still one last
quiz ahead. Out with
Owen and Doug and company thereafter to BJ's.
What's in a name? Everything.
