Today is the high point (or low point, depending on whether you're counting hours spent or mental health), in my mind anyway, of all this doubling up of orchestra pieces I've been slogging through for the past two weeks or so. This morning, I have a rehearsal at my school from 10-12, Mahler 1 and some Dvorak overtures. Then we will all frantically rush downtown for a 1-4 Civic rehearsal, also Mahler 1 and some Debussy Nocturns. Then it's home for about an hour, and back to school for a concert of the aforementioned pieces.
The fun's going to continue throughout the weekend, but today is the heaviest as far as doubling and bulk of rehearsal. Tomorrow it's just one rehearsal and another concert, and Monday it's a half hour dress rehearsal and a final concert. I'm sure it'll be fine, but it's kind of tiring even just looking at it on my computer. But, after Monday, my life gets so much less busy, or at least busy in a different way. Then I get to start really focusing on my recital instead of focusing on it in the sparse moments between Mahler 1 rehearsals.
