Concerto

Back from the Concerto Competition... it was amazing. Makes me missing being in a band. And guess what! I recognized the lead clarinet player. I thought, "That guy looks like Michael Byerly from high school." I look at the program and sure enough, it's him. I didn't even know he went to UW. :-)

Oh, and read this: (emphasis mine)
Erin Earl, age 17, is in her fourth year at the University of Washington, majoring in Computer Science and Music (Piano). She received a Mary Gates Research Training Grant for her research that combines her two majors by trying to use a computer science data compression algorithm to find structure in Bach. She plans to graduate in June, 2002, with a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Music, and a Bachelor of Science.
I refrained from making the entire text bold. (!!!!) My god. So impressive.

My favorite of the five concertos was the girl on the marimba. Very very cool.

There are so many things I want to be doing now and just in general ... I wish I had ten copies of myself or ten friends with similar goals. If I just do everything in series, by the time I'm done I'll have another billion things I want to do. I can't keep up.

In other news, I think I'm getting sick. Tired, sore throat. Feh. Have to do a dozen misc errands/tasks tonight. Can't sleep just yet.
