O gentle (lack of) sleep

Thank you to lovely soprano Becky for writing this instalment of our blog! 5.20am. Alarm goes off. Stumble out of bed. Find some clothes. Put them on.

So began our Berkeley concert day. After the short flight to San Francisco (or Frisco as I gather it is known), we were transferred almost directly into rehearsal. A delicious lunch courtesy of the continued
