British Geoffrey Bush's lovely lovely trio

Today was so much fun! Got together with Liz Koch and Carl Nitchie to rehearse our upcoming Trio for Ob/Bsn/Pf by British composer Geoffrey Bush. It's a treat!! Declamatory, sweeping, tender, quixotic, full of yummy solos...  we really enjoyed the piece. And you will too, I feel sure! It begins our season on Sun Oct 23rd. Hope it's on your calendar and you've already gotten your 2 for 1 tickets in advance. We haven't played it before, haven't heard it before... but it's a keeper. (Whew! *sigh of relief*)

And we're off!

Finally, FINALLY, after all the weeks of talking ABOUT music, writing about music, raising money and writing grants to make music ---- TODAY we had our first rehearsal for our first performance coming up this Sunday, our first soiree. It feels like I am bathing in a heavenly shower after a dry desert storm... :))))))))
