Day 293 — A lazy day with the Meistersinger
21-May-1972 (Sonntag–Sun.)


Lazy day. No practicing. Went to church (Singerknaben). Read a lot (Hesse—wild) and worked a little on report. Then went to an opera,
Der Meistersinger von Nuremburg, one of Wagner’s lighter operas (physically also). Excellent singing (for the most part). 3rd Act was a very grandiose, beautiful, choral (horn ensemble) melody. Then the lustig march. Still a long opera.


Lazy day. Good for me. And I get to see the Vienna Boys’ Choir at church. Glad I’m going to church once again. And a Hermann Hesse book. I can’t remember much about Hesse’s writing and will have to read him again.

Hello Meistersinger. A nice time at Wagner’s Der Meistersinger von Nuremburg at the opera. As a band director for middle school in later years, we used to play the March from this opera. The kids loved it.
