February 27 - Golden Gate Years

Finish the orchestration of Saul! Saul!: IX. Hide and Seek Ye before heading into the sunset of Alcatraz,

the Marin Headlands.

Mt. Tamalpais,

and San Francisco.

Then over the Bay towards

Coit Tower,

the TransAmerica Building

Sutro Tower, Twin Peaks,

One Rincon,

and the Peninsula.

Tonight, it's the dress rehearsal of the San Francisco Composers Chamber Orchestra's Free-For-All (But for You, $15) show at Old First Church (concert 8pm tomorrow), including
Lisa Scola Prosek's Serenade for Trumpet and Orchestra,

Erling Wold's Two Orchestral Waltzes for Lynne, and

the two movements of Sex and the Orchestra (I. Happy Funeral Music and

II. Downfall).

It's also Harriet's birthday,

so a quick blitz to the Community Music Center (where the first dress rehearsal of Marriage of Figaro -- featuring Meghan Dibble and Eliza O'Malley) is being held, with cake, champagne, and flowers follows... and a good time is had by all.
