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!”

carnegie hall, during my tfc days...

    you should try to set your schedule up so that you’re on family med or ambulatory IM when the concert is… then there won’t be a conflict. good luck!
