Caroline’s at orchestra
It was comedy night at orchestra last night. Maybe it was the heat.
“Throw another log on the air conditioner,” quipped H. as he sipped from his cup of … ummm … hot tea?
No, the band room is not air conditioned; yes, it was sweltering in there. And yes, H. is very good at sarcasm.
Perhaps it was the humid sticky air that caused Maestro to launch into a candy-corn comedy spiel and some Jersey shore shtick. “You should take your act to Caroline’s,” blurted E. as she picked up her … ummm … knitting yarn?
All this taking place during a dress rehearsal, mind you. And yes, E. is very good at blurting.
“Don’t you think this is too much music?” interrupted Pops president Ms.B. “WHAT?!?” shouted Maestro shooting her a piercing glance. You’re the one who said we needed a longer program for this concert.”
Hmmmm … I’m going to miss not having orchestra rehearsals, but I suppose it really is time to take a break for summer vacation. We all need it. Besides, it will give Maestro a chance to polish up his comedy routine.
