Mahler 2 at Carnegie Hall

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice a lot of triangle.

Last night was my third time playing the Big Room at Carnegie. This time it was the finale of Mahler 2. I played glock, chimes, on and offstage triangle, snare drum, and timpani. I was busy! The first two times I played at Stern was for the Higdon Concerto for Orchestra (AWESOME percussion feature) and Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms (STRESSFUL timpani part at the end). I hope to be back soon!
