I was in Pittsburgh over Labor Day weekend on a semi-secret mission. We ate ribs, toured the Warhol Museum, avoided a Bret Michaels concert, had some delicious Indian food in Oakland, and walked all over the city. I flew JetBlue again and this time there were no incidents whatsoever. Both flights were as unremarkable as possible, which is just what I want out of a trip.
I'm still thinking about the NYRO preview and other ways I can promote the orchestra's upcoming season. Rehearsals begin Thursday night and I can't wait to get back to playing every week.
