You can feel the electricity in the air, as the state of Maryland looks forward to to-nite's concert at the Fitzgerald theater. Very Happy

And, relative to nothing, the last image search turned up this pic of Svetlana and Varvara doing their gypsy act:

And, the biggest event of the season will be the pinhedz first appearance playing the Zhaleika. affraid

I'm not as good as these kids, but Svetlana says I'll be fine as long as I sound like a goose (a little goose from Smolensk, to be precise):

This just in (and be advised that Svetlana has never heard, or heard of, Dolly Parton).

In her search for music to perform in our upcoming monster concert with the Metropolitan Chorus, Svetlana happened upon the music for a song called "Light of a Clear Blue Morning."

She's never heard it--she's just seen the music--and has now orchestrated it and arranged it for large chorus and balalaika orchestra. Shocked

Really no surprise she would have picked this:

Its been a long long time
Since Ive known the taste of freedom
And those clinging vines
That had me bound, well I don't need em

Cause I am strong and I can prove it
And I got my dreams to see me through
Its just a mountain, I can move it
And with faith enough there's nothing I can't do

While rehearsing our Dolly Parton number, an amazing fact came to light. The woman that posed for the painting shown below (not Dolly herself) is a member of our orchestra (it was her husband that told us--the lady herself was keeping mum):

Svetlana decided to go "country" for a change. So we went and played at this place:

It is combined with a farm, which has been preserved so that future generations will know what a depression-era farm looked like:



And also what they smelled like:

Andrey -- "This place reminds me too much of where I came from." Neutral

pinhed -- "But you came from St. Petersberg." scratch

Andrey -- "Yes, and this is what it smelled like."

I think maybe I've slacked off and haven't been keeping you up to date on Svetlana's appearances. Neutral
