I was trying to get creative in this shot.
It was not a success. This is a Santa standing up in front of a bunch of Christmas trees for sale. In fact, I think I took a picture of the same Santa from last year. I should see if I still have it.
I was going for a “Santa in the urban wilds of New York City” thing.
Tonight we rehearse with the orchestra!! Woohoo. Very exciting.
John, our conductor, has me standing behind the timpani again this year. He is definitely trying to tell me something.
What I can’t wait for is to hear the quartet at the beginning of the Mendelssohn we’re doing. We haven’t heard that sung yet, and it’s a beautiful piece of music.
