November 16 - Fate's Run
Four months and some days have passed away since first we gathered for Theory. Many things we've done and now for fun the final run, beginning with Exam I, with musical exerpts drawn from Nirvana, Elton John, Mark Alburger (an excerpt from Antigone, from recent staging above), Howard Shore, and Radiohead -- with allusions to Richard Strauss and John Williams (the latter for final dictation... a first).
The Marin run follows, with another examination round of paper grading at Celia's, scheduling the new car for its first scheduled maintenance, and doing a second page of orchestration for The Gospel According to St. Matthew: XLI. Concerto for Confusion and Contention (after Duke Ellington's Concerto for Cootie)
