"Hi" works for me!  If one of your rides takes you through Columbia, you've got a place to stay.  I've thrown myself into community orchestra full throttle with two groups.  The one just performed yesterday Schumann 1, Rosamunde Overture and Light Cavalry Overture.  The chamber orchestra is starting a new program of Mozart, Mendelssohn, Marcello and I think another M.  A frequent dilemma with some community/volunteer groups: attendance, lack of bowed cello parts.  I found Schumann the toughest so far and have had to pull out notes from my "teach a man to fish" file instead of being spoon-fed, but I had the resources and applied them as best I could.  My cello, Merlin,  will also be undergoing a restoration probably this summer so I'm going to be in the Kimberly zone shortly (minus bicycle).
