We had breakfast and then discussed composition, conducting and creativity for Composing Thoughts.
Afterwards while still in Ithaca I met a friend who came to visit briefly - I've known her for 25 years, since junior high! She is now a professor at the Eastman School of Music. I've been trying to figure out the last time I saw Ann Marie - but its been awhile. She was fabulous and we enjoyed a great lunch at Moosewood. It was really sweet - hard not to gush about the food, but the company was even better.
Now I'm at Cornerstone Coffeehouse in Harrisburg, before a gig with Paul Zavinsky and friends. On the road, I got a call our mandolin player could make it, yeay!
