My chorus had performances on Saturday and Sunday. They went reasonably well. My only complaint is that there are some people who don't watch the conductor enough. At the very least, I wish they'd hold their music in front of them, so they can see the conductor, rather than looking down at their music.
I decided to learn French on my own for now, so I borrowed a Passport Books course from the Mountain View library. So far, most of what I've covered is review. The voices on the tape speak somewhat faster, and with stronger accents, than the voices on a tape from another course I have from Berlitz. That's actually good for me because I'll be more acclimated to how native French speakers speak their language.
