The new school year

School has begun for the year and both boys are loving their schools and teachers. Max is in 4th Grade still at PS 87 which is close to our house and Riley has moved to a Junior High School called Delta. It’s uptown a bit so he takes a city bus there and back – by himself!  He’s growing up. Both boys are studying piano now and are both avid practicers!  Max is studying violin as well plus he takes ballet at ABT twice a week.

Miranda is teaching again this year at Ballet Tech which is in the same building as ABT so we are often in the same place though we hardly ever see each other there!  ABT’s season has not started but I’m arranging parts of the Verdi opera Ballo in Maschera for string quartet.  I’m nearly finished which is a good thing because the performances are October 18-20!

There is no touring for me this fall which is a great thing.  Nutcracker season is coming and I’m again doing the School of the Arts production in Winston-Salem.  This has the bonus of letting me see Mona several times while I’m there.  In February the travel begins – Pittsburgh, Japan, Abu Dhabi, Minneapolis, back to Pittsburgh, and DC.
