In a Mexican mood thanks to their upcoming performance, ETHEL’s viola superstar Rafael (aka¬† Ralph Farris) reports on the quartet’s prep for their visit to North Adams.¬† ETHEL will accompany La Nave de Los Monstrous (Ship of Monsters) on Friday, October 30.
Dorothy, Neil and I just finished a marathon work session and I’m thrilled to report that we FINISHED editing and formatting our revised parts for Friday’s show! Woo-hoo!
Now Dorothy’s off to the printer and Neil’s cataloging our ever-growing collection of percussion instruments.
This is a highly unusual turn of events. We’re normally editing parts right up until show time, so I’m going to have to find some other drama to consume me for the next few days. Any suggestions?
We’re all coming together for the final touch-up on Thursday. That’s when Mary breaks out the drum sticks, and Neil and I get to practice our recorder intonation. Folks, it just doesn’t get any better.
OK — I’m going to take a nap now. Catch y’all on Friday!
