Since I don’t live in Grenoble I was staying round Johann’s house for the duration of the festival! We both overslept, he knocked on my door saying it was already 9 something.. and we had a rehearsal at 10!
He left before me and I bought croissants and Pain-au-chocolat’s for all the musicians who were also in the rehearsal :) either because I’m super nice or because it was my way of saying ‘yes I’m late but look… FOOOD! :D ‘
Turns out I wasn’t even late so it was all good! :) the composer (Arnaud Petit) conducted us, it was a piece he wrote for two flutes, two clarinets, a bassoon and a tuba!
