This week’s theme: Empty

Yes, music lovers, that is an empty suitcase. And my mission this evening is to fill it with all the things I need to take to New York City. The washer and dryer are humming away (washing the kids’ clothes for next week, as well as some of my own) and I have piles of things stacked around the house ready to put in the suitcase after I check them off my packing list.Next: Time to practice my music since we have our send-off concert tomorrow and then leave on Sunday morning for New York City.

The house and stage in this photo are empty:

But they won’t be on Wednesday evening when my fellow musicians and I take that stage and play our hearts out!Here’s the program:


Fanfare – The world premiere of a specially commissioned piece by retired San Joaquin Delta College Music Department faculty member Max Simoncic
An American Elegy
Scootin’ on Hardrock
Introduction and Dance featuring a tuba solo by Doug Hunt, principal tuba with the Stockton Symphony
Concertino – Movement III featuring a vibraphone solo by Brian Kendrick
Four Scottish Dances
El Camino Real

As you will see from my weekly column at Write Stuff, I will not be blogging, reading e-mail or cruising the ‘Net for the next week! So I will be back with pictures and details about my trip next week!
