Bend Blogger Meetup & Symphony Concerts
Busy week this week for events. The McMenamins Old St. Francis School here is Bend is having their grand opening on Thursday, Nov. 18 (actually, it's the 19th and 20th as well, and they're actually doing a "soft launch" tomorrow). Some local bloggers are planning a meetup there on Thursday at 7:00PM. Jon, Simone, Shannon and Dane (assuming he's productive and beats his deadlines) should all be there, but we'd love to have more locals!
I won't be able to make it as I'm busy as heck with other obligations all week. I have rehearsals for three Central Oregon Symphony concerts this weekend. We're playing a planetary series with Mozart's Symphony No. 41 ("Jupiter") and Holst's The Planets suite. It's going to be a dang good show. If anybody wants tickets, do let me know. The tickets are free, but they're hard to come buy, but I can probably get ahold of some for you. And there's free snacks, drinks, and munchies during intermission, so that's never a bad thing, right? Just make sure that you say "Hi" (you'll probably just barely see my head at the concert, as I'm a percussionist).
Coming up in a couple weeks is a concert I have with the Cascade Winds Symphonic Band. That's going to be a great show with tons of great percussion and music, so stay tuned for more details on that one.
