August 26 - Everybody In the Water

Dictation and next week's keyboard-solfege for the Theoreticians is Beethoven's Symphony No. 9: IV. "Ode to Joy" simplified theme in C. Additionally we harmonize same in parallel perfect fifths above, no doubt alarming many, and begin listening/looking at this semester's fine crop of student compositions. In the lab, there's a mad last-minute dash for coffee and sandwiches, plus Tritone Orchestra recording of

John and Salome: III. CHORUS - "I Should Be"

clearly troped on the introduction to the first movement of Igor Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms.

Before and after, begin the orchestration of IV. PAVANE - "Are You the One", plus a bike-and-pool break with Harriet.
