John Corigliano @ Midwest 2006

March 26, 2007

I never got around to the Midwest recap post, and since I’m supposed to be doing my taxes right now, this is as good a time as any. Eric didn’t make it out this year – first time he’s missed in something like 11 years (or was it 13?). Definitely wasn’t the same without him (for one, I went to sleep a lot earlier…), but we were joined by someone I just never would’ve expected to see at Midwest:

That’s right, John Corigliano himself. And yes, that’s a customized BCM International polo shirt he’s proudly sporting. We have a few more of these (without John’s name on them, of course), so if you’re interested, contact us

Another highlight was the premiere of Loose Id for Brass Ensemble and Drumset by SoundInn Brass on Saturday morning, conducted by Ray Cramer:

And of course, there’s always Mackey taking pictures of his food. This was at lunch with Newm, Corigliano, Verena, and myself. Corigliano bought us all a couple bottles of wine. Hell yes.

Best way to finish out the week? Of course – a gathering of BCM Forumites at the booth!

L-R: Will Hays, Jamie Henderson, Newm, Jim, Montoya (our ever-faithful booth assistant), Matt Schoendorff, and me

That’s all I have time for right now – perhaps a few more photos will surface on the BCM Blog at some point.

I love doing taxes. Ugh.
