I’m hitting the road today for two weeks of concerts, classes and lessons as composer-in-residence for the Wintergreen Summer Arts Festival.  The theme of this summer’s festival is Music from the Mediterranean (how I fit into that theme is a story for another day).  I’ll have eight young composers to work with – I’ve been getting to know their most recent works this past week.  Right now I have a faux checklist of supplies to review:

  • Rappelling gear? Check.
  • Whitewater kayak?  Check.
  • Hang glider?  Check.

And now the real list:

  • Sunglasses?  Can’t find them.
  • Comfy sandals?  Lost them.
  • Sleep medications?  Leave ‘em behind.  I’ll rough it.

See you in the mountains.
