Re: Doctor Who - 2009

You may have already heard this - but I only saw it this evening.

Dr Who is apparently taking a year off - so no Dr. Who in 2009.  The reason is that David Tennant wants to do a play.  However the BBC won't confirm that he is to be the Doctor in that series.

It sounds to me as if he will be - hence the year out.  I hope so as I think David is a great Dr. Who.

You Know The Phrase ...

"There's good news and there's bad news"

Well - 

The good news is that I was able to stay to an hour of orchestral rehearsal tonight - and the pain in my lungs was only just starting.  (I won't tell you how many mistakes there were though!!)

But - 

The bad news is - I have less than a month to get concert fit.  Again there is good and bad news there.

The good news is that as it is a classical concert the first clarinet parts are not 100% of the time.

However when I am playing they are important!  And on the day of the concert we have a full rehearsal all afternoon - which I usually find tyring when I am fit! 

Still, overall I am happier than I was about a month ago when I thought I would be pulling out.

For those who are interested the programme is:-

Beethoven's Egmont Overture.
A Suite of modern music written by a local person.
Schubert's Piano Concerto
A Mozart Symphony.
