Heavy workloads at University have led to missing a great deal of interesting news.
Here is a brief summation and links so we can catch up:

Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Fracisco Symphony won THREE Grammy awards - for Best Classical Album, Best Engineered Classical Album, and Best Choral Performance. To catch up on the awards we missed you can check here: www.grammy.com
Michael Hersch's Last Autumn for Alto Sax and Cello had its World Premier in New York.
The Cleveland Orchestra with Pierre Boulez at the podium recorded an all-Mahler concert for future CD and DVD release.

Of course this is only a small fraction of the interesting news that slipped though our fingers while Chip was busy with University this past quarter. I hope to be able to get regular posts going again. In the short term - prepare to be deluged as I clear the TwinStar inbox. Eddie
