Having just had a super busy, yet super fun Thanksgiving weekend, I don’t have anything musically oriented for today, so I thought I’d let you know a few things I have in the works!
As you know, I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing the entire horn section of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra as well as our new concertmaster. Now, I’m working on setting up some more fun interviews of CSO conductors, an upcoming soloist (fingers crossed, this works out!), an American composer and a local business that supports our symphony! Most of these will take place after the new year, so there are some exciting things in Giocosity’s future!
Some friends and I are all going to go see the CSO Holiday Pops concert this Saturday! I’m excited since it’ll be my first time going to this one. The following weekend, I’ll be attending another holiday concert with my dad. This time, it’ll be the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra that we go see. I haven’t gone to their holiday concerts before either.
Not music related, but on my knitting blog, Itinerant Knitter, I’m posting a stashbusting advent calendar that starts today. Not sure what that is? Well – it just means that I have a ton of yarn in my stash – much like every other knitter and crocheter – including a certain music director in Chattanooga (who shall remain nameless!) who may or may not have recently added to her own stash thanks to a great yarn sale online. Ahem. So each day, I’ll be introducing you to some yarn in my own stash. No guarantees if I’ll actual stash bust or not, i.e. actually knit something with it, but I’ll have fun with it anyway! Maybe I’ll get some good suggestions on what I can make.
So much yarn, so little time.
Giocosity is a pretty new blog. I’ve only been around since June, but this weekend, I topped 5,000 visits to my blog! Yea! As always you’re welcome to leave comments or shoot me an Email (Giocosity (at) gmail.com) as I love to hear from you. Most important though, THANK YOU for reading what I write. It means a lot that more and more people are interested in what I share here.
Thank you again and have a great week, everyone!
