    Yes! I have learned the notes on my program, except the Kabalewsky. This year's going to be sweet with good piano courses.

    I'm doing a bit of dabbling in Beethoven's Piano Sonata no. 18 in Eb. Beautiful work, that is.

    I'm also, more primarily, working on a little novelty piece by Zez Confrey: Coaxing the piano. It's a very fun piece to play.

    Beethoven's sonata WoO 47 No. 2

    Not very impressive I know, but it's on my programme.

    I've started on something new finally, and I'm pretty stoked. It's Medtner's first piano concerto.

    I'm currently working on learning the piece of Johann Pachelbel, Canon in C... I heard the music and it sounds great so I also want to play it myself.

    Piano literature wasn't big enough to choose from?

    Steve Reich's Clapping Music. A lot harder than it sounds! I've yet to find someone good enough to clap it with me.. Everyone gets lost after the first shift.. Still, a fun piece that also serves as rythm practice!

    My Grandfather and I are working with Immanuel Dutch Reform Church in Ripon and will be part of the chorus in the Messiah on December 6th. I'm going to enjoy every bit of it, although it's not exactly the most demanding Oratorio. I'll be singing lead Bass.

    It may not be extremely demanding, but it's not totally uninteresting to sing. I sang tenor a couple of years back and had a blast!

    No kidding. I love it too! Some very good composing on Handel's part. Not only that but some evocative use of scripture. I think the quote from Malachi 3:3 is fantastic.

    I'm beginning my repertoire for next semester.. I'll be playing Beethoven's "Waldstein" sonata and the Tchaikovsky concerto; not quite sure what else yet.
