some especially fine San Diego weather
Fortunately, theorbo player Benjamin Perrot is quite the expert in packing, and also the three with me—Florence, Benjamin, and Jeffrey—were not afraid of cramped spaces. We managed to make it home without problems.
I especially enjoy introducing musicians to San Diego, and the recent weather is cooperating very nicely. Florence wondered if weather was always like this. No, sometimes it is better. (We can ignore the weekend storm that dumped an inch of rain on us as an aberration.)
They have cooked up a surprise for us Friday night; I bound by an oath to not reveal it under any circumstance. Except to say, I can't wait. This is a nicely formed group: theorbo, viola da gamba, and harpsichord backing up the singer. Just to be clear: it's not all singing, you will have a chance to hear each of the instruments solo. It's not too late to order your tickets online.
