    On a muggy day in July, in a Long Island backyard, a group of musicians had gathered for rehearsal. As their conductor gently raised both hands, they steadied their instruments, and played the first notes of a Bach chorale, “Nun freut euch, Gottes Kinder all.” The conductor stopped them. The snake gourd had not hit the D and the butternut squash had come in a little sharp. Take it from the top, he told the players.

    Geez, I subscribe to the Times and I missed this somehow. Thanks for posting. Interesting and fascinating and a welcome respite from the news of the world I had been reading. "You can't make soup after a concert" seems banner-worthy.
