carnegie hall in may?

10 Sep

So, I was just offered a contracted position to sing with the Philadelphia Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, May 2012.  It’s Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloe.  Right smack in the middle of clerkships.  I have until September 30th to decide.

Thoughts?  Do we think med school will release me for a couple Friday and Saturday night performances?

I feel like I keep grasping at performances, thinking they’ll be my last.  While I might be able to swing it in med school, I do think residency will make participating in a choir somewhat impossible.  Am I a total idiot if I agree to this?

I should pause to recognize that I am very much tickled pink by this unexpected opportunity.  In the words of the great Albus Dumbledore: “Ah, music…A magic far beyond all we do here!”
