The full orchestra is playing Charlottesville in a week, and the 12-year-old soprano had to cancel--all is lost. Neutral

Charlottesville loved Olga, LOVED her!

They went sort of gaga, so to speak.

CD number 6 is now in the pipeline--I believe the pressing plant is in Minnesota. We even added one of Olga's live performances from Charlottesville. I love you I love you

Now I can relax.
Or not--now we can party. cheers

The party is for the founders of the Washington Balalaika Society. Smile

Svetlana says that anyone bringing ethanol products must arrive early, because "We will start drinking at five o'clock."

If I have anything to report, it might not be today.

I do remember some things--I think a good time was had by all. drunken

I think I could compile a Russian-to-English phrase book. Here's a start. geek

When she says:

"Good sight reading!" that means "You didn't even look at this at home, did you?"

When she says:

"Good composing!" that means "Take off your glasses so you can look at the music instead of the conductor." bounce

I'm digging Svetlana & Co. It's not the kind of music I'm usually exposed to, so thank you for expanding my horizons. I'd have to give it a few more listens before I could offer any kind of coherent opinion, but all in good time.

Thanks, again. x

I reckon Svetlana's genre is what they call a "niche market," so the trick is get the most folks possible into the niche.

Svetlana says we have a gig in New Jersey--that means we get to ride in a tour bus. Very Happy

She asked Olga to come and sing with us. I love you

For Shostakovich fans: at 2:50, the poor guy is in the wrong place at the wrong time, so Olga has to bash him with a candlestick. Neutral

Svetlana didn't whip me too hard today.

It was a long day, what with the road trip and all, 16 hours (7 am to 11 pm).

But Olga did sit with the pinhed on the bus, even if only for a short time. Cool I love you

Last night was my first rehearsal playing with 3 fingers.

Svetlana said: "You have to play more Legato." geek

So, does the doc say you will heal up well and be able to use that broke-ass finger of yours in the future?

Doc says that the joint should work after the pins are out, but if there's not enough cartilage, the joint will become arthritic. Neutral
Then he says he could fuse it at the suitable angle for a 7th chord.

Rough night at rehearsal.

The U.S. Congress pays tribute to Svetlana.

Long overdue, if you ask me. bounce

Svetlana is going to Florida tomorrow, so I reckon I'll be going, too.
Not the best time of the year for it.
