V, JM, and I will head down to TMEA in San Antonio tomorrow morning for the Texas Tech and Baylor University concerts. Texas Tech is doing two movements of Mackey’s Sax Concerto at noon, and Baylor will follow at 2pm, with Mvt. I the logic of all my dreams, from Alchemy in Silent Spaces. I heard Baylor last week at rehearsal, and again this morning in a pre-TMEA performance at Westwood HS here in Austin, and they are doing a fantastic job with my piece (and the others, too, notably Corigliano’s Gazebo Dances and Daugherty’s Bells for Stokowski). So, all you TMEA people out there – we expect to see each every one of you at the Texas Tech and Baylor concerts on Thursday! 🙂
…and then hopefully it’s off to a bar so Mackey can introduce us to the newly-created Asphalt Cocktail!
