October 1 - Interesting Times

San Francisco Cabaret Opera tech rehearsal for Patrick Dailly's Solidarity at Oakland's Flux 53 -- for a run this Saturday at 8pm and next weekend

(on Foothill Boulevard opposite a moon-on-a-post). Before that print out the parts for the fifth movement of Elijah Ghost, followed by Quiz 7 with the Theoreticians -- beginning chord inversions, dominant sevenths, melodic minor scale, and harmonization in both treble and bass clefs -- with examples drawn from J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, W.A. Mozart, Gruber, and Chopin.

Clam chowder and coffee at the Student Union snack bar, and just enough time to do a Garbage Band recording of

For My Brother For My Brother:

3. V. A Mother's Disappointment

Dash past Diablo to Flux for the tech rehearsal, then home to finish the orchestration (through page 22) of The Gospel According to St. Matthew: XVI. The Tax Collector.
