Ps and Qs and PDQ
Since two hours of total non-math isn’t enough incentive, we get a nice array of snacks during rehearsal breaks with the skilled, serious, always-in-tune Caltech concert band. Except, of course, when the director arrives at the snack storage locale to find a small horde of NPR employees merrily swallowing our marshmallow fudge lumps.
Bastards! I thought. We’ll see if I ever support the quality programming on my local public radio station!
But my ire vanished once the break was over and I discovered that we’re going to play PDQ Bach’s March of the Cute Little Wood Sprites on the next concert. Wheee!!!
