Catching Up

I've fallen behind my normal posting pace, so here is a quick catch-up:

Basically, thank you all for making this class so much fun! I am glad we do some serious score study/listening to three landmark works (Poulenc, Tomasi, Etler) and I hope you all get to perform these works sometime.
