March 11 - Seek and Find
After several more orchestrated pages of King David: I. How Long Grieving Over Saul, arrive at St. Mary's to a doubled class size on a high-school visitation day, and we are graced with additional talented students (pianist, clarinetist, oboist, and singer) for a discussion of Music in the Enlightenment from Frescobaldi to Lully Then it's the old Charles Ives Variations on America: Spanish Variation dictation routine (plus some Chopin, Bizet, and Satie) in DVC Theory, after which the orchestration of KD: I is finished (still a novelty working on music with the laptop at school) and recorded. Beyond is the Berkeley Hillside Club, to drop off the digital projector to Harriet and San Francisco Cabaret Opera for second dress rehearsal of The Marriage of Figaro, then a detour along the frontage road for views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands,
Bay Bridge, San Francisco,
and Emeryville's Pacific Park Plaza and
Watergate Towers, eventually reaching San Francisco for another Scola Prosek Soiree with music by Lisa, Ed, Loren Jones, Davide Verotta,
plus Saul! Saul!: III. O early Piety! and IX. Hide and Seek Ye.
