If any of you are here to check in, I want to say congratulations and what a fine performance on "From The Top". A first (mandolin) on that program. Heard it on my public radio station Sun. evening, July 25.
For those not familiar with this orchestra, they are ages 13-18 and most excellent musicians. "From the Top" is a traveling/outreach program of the New England Conservatory, aired on public radio, showcasing musicians in the above mentioned age bracket.
