LA Update #2

I'm sitting on the floor of a recital hall at USC (where we have been rehearsing all week for our concert) listening to Kimberly and Plylar play Phantom Vignettes (by Plylar himself)...we are gearing up for our concert tomorrow at the Brand Library in Glendale (I think its an art and music library)...hopefully we will have some kind of audience! It also happens to be my birthday tomorrow...in case you were wondering. (the pic is of me sitting on the floor...right now)

It has still been mostly rehearsing all the time...with some sleeping thrown in. Today was the first day where we didn't rehearse at 8am...we started at 11...which meant I got to sleep until 9am!!! I naturally woke up at 6, probably because I have gotten up at that time for almost a week now...guess it doesn't take that long to get used to early rising...I should file that one away for future reference.

Haven't had too much time for fun antics...but Ply and Alison took me to 21 Choices in Pasadena last night, which is a great frozen yogurt place with millions of toppings to mix in...kind of like cold stone except with frozen yogurt...it was yummy...I will probably get out to see some sites this weekend when we have more free time...so far I've spent most of my time in the Eagle Rock and Highland park areas...a brief trip to Los Feliz to eat at Fred 62 and Hollywood to get Mr. Fischer's cello looked at...it was buzzing...but they fixed it, and then it kind of came back, but goes away sometimes...no idea whats going on down there...

Ply's cello piece has come together surprisingly fast...it turns out the most of the piece is fairly easy to put together but the first to pages (which Patti and I worked on) are VERY difficult...we have spent most of our time on those...I think it will go very well at the concert tomorrow and I'm excited to play the premiere!!
