We have a great concert this weekend in South Bend. Beethoven’s 8th Symphony is always a treat, and we’ll also be featuring our principal trumpet, Steve Orejudos, in the Haydn Trumpet Concerto.
I love hearing my colleagues perform, and it’s always particularly exciting when the soloist is a wind player. The Haydn is one of my very favorite non-oboe concertos, and Steve is an outstanding musician, so this should be a special event. ALSO, we get to play at the lovely DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, and for all of these reasons I am looking enormously forward to Saturday afternoon.
