I reluctantly tore myself away from the lunch table today to begin rehearsals for my annual concert out here on the North Fork. This year we’re doing a program called 100 Years of Broadway Love. I chose the theme because I thought that it would have a user-friendly, end-of summer appeal, and because I assumed it would be a breeze to program—so many wonderful songs! It turned out to be a nightmare to whittle the list down from 200 to 20, and I made things even more complicated when I decided the program had to go in chronological order. My breeze was suddenly a gale force wind.
We had a four-hour rehearsal today—with a tea break, of course. Time for me to turn in. Stay tuned—and join us on Sunday if you’re in the nabe.
