Orchestra Doodles

Our colleague Paul Barrett has suffered through the financial trials of the Honolulu Symphony. He has created some greeting cards. Some of the cards are based on doodles made during rehearsals as Principal Bassoon in Honolulu. Rehearsals do have down time, so it is tempting to doodle. While editing and cleaning up the parts to BUOSO'S GHOST, I came across this doodle in the French Horn I book. Since the parts have been used many times, it is hard to say which talented Horn player did this, with BUOSO changed to BOZO.

BUOSO'S GHOST playing to the West

My opera BUOSO'S GHOST is going to play this spring at Amarillo Opera and the University of Southern Utah. I'll post more about this soon.
