On the road yet again...This time, a day trip into the heart of darkness, if you're Jesse Helms, or the very center of Western Culture, if you're a kneejerk liberal. I'll be taking an early transport down to Manhattan to meet with the Japanese to see what my Fall may bring in terms of international travel. After my obligations, I'm fairly certain I'll do a bit of socializing. FSM knows when I'll get back to Boston...maybe via a few casinos? There's a 330am bus from the Port Authority that takes about 7 hours to make it back to Boston. I'm sure you can guess what nefarious nooks of knavery it visits on its way.

As of Monday, however, I get to screech off into practicing my repertoire for next season. Schuller's Episodes and the Bach/Hasty Chromatic Fantasy are at the top of my to-do list. Somewhere in there is the preparation for two ginormous orchestra audition lists. It appears that they'll be separated enough that I can focus on each in turn (should be at least 8 months apart), but one can never tell. I still need to get the list for the first one as it should be different than the standard fare. Bring on a summer of steady work and very little stress!

Oh...and to continue an inside joke (way inside...)...For those about to Rock, we salute you.
