March 13 - Chantly Charms of the Hills
Finish Psalm 23, Op. 172, and the orchestration of
King David: II. Evil Spirit (part of the album Hill Country Music, and learning a new temporary recording technique by converting Sibelius file into audio, and increasing dynamics and reverb in GarageBand) before heading out to
Berkeley, up University Avenue to the beckoning, undulating hills near
The Hillside Club (or should we say Clvb?, and, exactly, how shall we say it?),
with its cozy views of redwoods
and stately architecture,
beyond an impressive mantle, for tonight's amazing San Francisco Cabaret Opera / Goat Hall Productions presentation of W.A. Mozart's
The Marriage of Figaro, directed by Harriet March Page, to a packed house including
DVC Music Literature students.
Somewhere in all this, before leaving home and in the interval between initial set-up and box-office work, orchestrate all of K.D.: III. What You Doing?
