Children Amassed

A new week already! Last week started out rather busy with a potluck on Tuesday then Thanksgiving on Thursday, but I hardly managed to leave the house on Friday, Saturday, and most of Sunday. I had and still have a ton of grading to do as my three classes are winding down.

Sunday, I finally left the apartment to see my friend, J.Mae, play violin at Carnegie Hall. This was the program:

New England Symphonic Ensemble

Stern Auditorium, Sunday, November 30, 2008 at 8:30 PM

Program Details

New England Symphonic Ensemble
John Rutter, Conductor
Alexandra Costin, Piano
With participating choruses

Piano Concerto in A Minor, Op. 16
Mass of the Children

It was pretty good and I surprised myself by really getting into Mass of the Children. There's something about so many voices joined in chorus.
This week will be busy with work and then towards the end of the week there's the usual engagements of birthdays, dinners, etc. I think the Small Press Fair is in town this weekend? I'll look into it and post a blog later this week with details. I'm sure there are readings happening this week, but for the life of me I can't think where or when they are.
