Today’s rehearsal saw the arrival of our long-awaited clarinetist, Mary Anne –  who seems to be making a name for herself not as a clarinetist (which she majored in during college), but as a violist.

First, let me say that I am now committed to getting someone to play clarinet in The Orchestra on a permanent basis (two clarinetists would be most excellent) – Mary Anne’s playing has convinced me it is a must. Fureai just sounded so…wretchedly good(!!!)…it was like getting shot through the heart again!

Alas, the first violins snapped – mass amnesia seemed to be the theme today, with everyone forgetting entrances, positions, completely ignoring key signatures, and coming down with intense deafness – very unusual behavior, if you ask me. It took quite a bit of effort on my part to stop from latching onto someone’s head and gnawing their brains out in a fit. It was quite embarrassing.

Excuse me. I need to go hurt something.
