It’s Tuesday night, and I should be packing for our trip out west. But again, true to character, I’m doing everything but! My friend Sylvia is at my apartment, and we just had some pizza while watching American Idol. I thought I’d write a couple of lines, and then I really should pack! Last night’s concert at Curtis was very exciting! There was a great energy in the hall and also between the six of us; it was a really enjoyable concert to play! However I think it was just a little nerve wracking for all of us, because we knew that it was being recorded for WHYY and for a recording release. Even if we tried not to think about it, WHYY had their cameras and lights set up in the hall, which were quite hard to miss. It was so nice to play at Curtis, because we were playing for all our friends, teachers and supporters. It was a really lovely evening!Before the Schoenberg, Dr. McGinn, our English teacher, did a beautiful reading of the poem Transfigured Night by Richard Dehmel. Joel will be writing a post with the text of the poem soon, and talking a little bit about it. There have already been 410 streams and 166 track downloads of the Curtis Concert on InstantEncore.com! I’m looking forward to listening to the recording on the plane ride tomorrow. Unfortunately I have to start packing now because our morning starts early tomorrow, but I’ll be writing more soon. Until I loosen my bow again, BellaThe six of us backstage after the concert. The six of us with Dr. McGinn, our english teacher. Bill and I were cello caddies. This was our reward at the end of the night!
