I went to the Shoreline Amphitheatre with some folks from chorus on Monday. There were also
some friends of the chorus folks who are into folk dancing. The SF Symphony and fireworks
were good as usual, but my favorite part of the evening was when the chorus folks gave a
little a cappella performance of some of our music for the others. I was actually impressed
during All Night, as I heard some of the organ-like resonance that I really enjoy
about the piece. It's another example of how far we've come as a group. In fact, on the
way back, one of the chorus members (who's unfortunately returning with her husband to
Belgium) remarked that she's going to miss the way our director polishes our rehearsals.

My piano teacher had a master class tonight, in which we did some group rhythm exercises.
The kids kept teasing and poking each other during practice. I don't think the exercises
really held their attention. My guess is that my teacher's trying to get them to work
together as a team. She said something about in an ensemble, it's important for everyone to
know everyone else's part.

I had a chilling thought regarding the London bombings. Supposing the terrorists were
poised to launch an attack on whichever city was chosen to host the 2012 Olympics? Peter
Jennings ended ABC Evening News tonight with a little piece on "what a difference a day
made" between the euphoria of the hosting victory and the tragedy of the bombings.
