One week down, one week to go. This place is great!

We played a July 4 “Patriotic Pops” concert and then two concerts of Carmina Burana (which I was in) and excerpts of Rossini’s “Barber of Seville” (which I wasn’t). My delightful seat for the week was at the back of the viola section, which also meant I was directly in front of, and between, the bass drum and snare on my left and the timpani on my right. I’ll just leave that there. ;) But it also meant that directly to my right and just in front was the soprano’s seat for Carmina Burana, which made everything better.

So there has been music, and fireworks

And beautiful views of the valley from my shared housing overlooking it

And old friends

And lots of hiking!

that is all. Looking forward to this week’s program of Sibelius “En Saga,” Brahms “Haydn Variations,” and Rachmaninov 3rd Piano Concerto with Yefim Bronfman. And more hiking.

watch this space!
