Approaching a grand finale

Lots of music this week, culminating in the big show on the weekend; the tech rehearsal went very well. The lucky clarinet reeds are holding up nicely.
Sunday, day of the Big Show: It's been pouring non-stop for hours, almost days; if people can overcome the despair of going out and getting into cars, it's a good way to spend an otherwise indescribably dreary afternoon.
The concert went well overall; more people were in attendance, and we were told we sounded great. Personally, I did pretty well except for a bit of near-squawking in one piece, which I attribute to an unexpected attack of "Elvis shakin'" on my mouth. Ah, well, we went, we played, we sounded good.
I will miss playing with the group the next couple of weeks, but will persevere in my personal practicing.

It was fun being your backup band! On to the Frog Music. Bring on the snails and stinky cheese.

Glad the concert went well. We're having plenty of rainy wet weather here too. Winter is all about life indoors.

Urg. Well, maybe slightly stinky cheese would be okay...Wow, some "backup band!" Amazing!

We had some swell sun breaks yesterday, robin a, perfect for urban hiking. Unexpected.
And a moonbreak last night,just when we thought we'd never want to go out again.
