  1. Don't Ask Me Why: Chapter 6

    Marie came to the concert hall for the symphony pretty early. She hoped to meet Tanya and Marcus wherever they would be sitting. She picked up a program to see what it looked like. All very neatly organized, just the way she planned it: von Suppe's Poet & Peasant Overture, Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphosis, Intermission, Brahms' Symphony no. 3. She flipped to the back of the program to see the names of the musicians, and sure enough, Alex's name was listed among the names.

  2. Don't Ask Me Why: Chapter 5

    Tanya was thrilled the night of the first choral concert. She felt perfectly confident in her abilities and in those whom she conducted. She preferred not to use a baton, and only her hands, since that's common for small choirs.

    It was for this evening that she wore her new red shoes, which matched her dark red blazer and black skirt. She was certain Marcus would like it. Unfortunately, he was very busy, and was coming back from an all-day conference very late, but Tanya made him

    It turned out that Marie didn't have to invite Christy to anything for Friday night. There was to be a party at the back of the school of music in the courtyard, and only Marie was invited. It would be a get-together before the hectic schedules that everyone was going to run in the semester, including herself. Marie was surprised that she was invited, since no one knew who she was, but she figured Tanya was probably involved in it. It was mostly for graduate students, although a few professors would

  5. Don't Ask Me Why: Chapter 2

    Marie was just finished working at the box office. It wasn't a shift she particularly enjoyed, since it was being in contact with so many people in a short amount of time, and it drained her. What she really preferred was working with the music programming department where she put together and edited various programs of concerts and recitals. She loved looking at them when they were completed, and seeing all the neat program notes and biographies of the performers.
