March 30 - Making the Grade
Morning class finishing up Handel (including three sing-throughs of Messiah: Hallelujah to recordings early, Mozartean, and Proutish), afternoon with dictation from Duke Ellington's Concerto for Cootie, lunch at China Garden finally catching up with grading, and another saunter on the Lafayette-Moraga Trail -- this time on the old railroad grade semicircling the last northern vestige of Las Trampas Ridge.
Home again, beyond Mt. Diablo, finishing the orchestration of The Death of Ishbosheth section of King David: XVI Before the Arc and beginning that of The Ark Dance.
