uh-oh… it’s the big one

while the rest of the planet was celebrating frédéric chopin’s bicentennial birthday on this date last year, a certain nocturnal, semi-aquatic, industrious rodent with a serious penchant for local orchestral music quietly decided to enter the blogosphere.  over the course of a single year, the classical beaver somehow managed to snag 27 interviews, 132 posts, and 11,000+ visits.  and perhaps the biggest success story of all: when one googles the name of this blog, soft porn is no longer the first result.  everyone here at the home office sends a big phat “thank you” to all you beaver readers out there, to all the folks (both onstage and off) at the oregon symphony, and to one very understanding hubbie.

pssst.  in fact, y’all have been so great out there that the beaver’s gonna give you a little gift of its own.  if you haven’t heard already, the band has been invited back to carnegie hall in 2013, which is pretty damn sweet since, hell, they haven’t even been there once yet.  what’s still hush-hush is the program they will play; however – the detailed “anonymous” notes on the festival website for program 1 includes this sentence: “A truly unusual element is the inclusion of the electrifying vocalism of punk rock singer Storm Large, whose re-interpretation of her own and American Songbook standards fit well into the program frame.”  i’d be extremely surprised if ms. large is gonna sing with the buffalo philharmonic.  just sayin’.  wanna see the rest of this supposedly secret 2013 program?  well, click right here.

now, if you’ll excuse me, there’s a thick piece of birthday wood with the beaver’s name on it.

    Hey Beav – one caveat on the program – there were two program submitted and we don’t know which one they picked…
