All-Star Sunday!

You guys, I can’t thank you ENOUGH for how you have responded to the Buffalo Outdoor Sports Association fund raiser.  The response has been truly wonderful.  Thank you so so so so so so so so much to everyone who has donated.  In the next couple of days I will tell you more about the money we’ve raised and the way it will be spent.

In the meantime, if you haven’t yet donated, please take a minute to read yesterday’s post (and browse the selection of TOTALLY glamorous prizes) and consider making a small donation.  Every little bit helps, and you could win an autographed picture of Crunchy!


At work this week we played a concert with three Mozart symphonies and two intermissions.  Because of having two intermissions, the pacing of the show was very hockey-esque.  All that was missing were the Timbits during the intermissions and Sabretooth with a t-shirt gun shooting into the audience.  At the end of the concert this afternoon we were joking that we should play a 5 minute OT encore, and then after that engage in some sort of orchestra vs. conductor head to head combat until a victor can be determined.

My point is that I am crazy tired.  Playing a hockey game of Mozart is hard!  I have no energy for my original plan, which was an All-Star game liveblog.  Instead, I’m going to eat dinner and hang around in the IPB open thread this evening.

Enjoy the All-Star game everyone!

    Did you play today? I was at the concert this afternoon and kept trying to figure out if you were there, and if so, which one you were. :-D Where do you sit in relation to the conductor?

    Thanks for coming to the concert, Rebecca! I did play yesterday. I’m viola player, and we sit in the middle of the string section to the conductor’s right. We’re kind of tucked in behind the cellos!

    The concert was wonderful! I don’t know much about classical music, but I was in awe of those symphonies.

    So my husband and I were wondering, how often/long do you get to practice with a guest conductor? And did Delfs drive you nuts, or was he okay? :-D He’s certainly different.
