Great News!

I passed my defense! Now I've got a billion corrections to make on my thesis report, but at least I know I'm bona fide.

Defense *clap* *clap*

I thought the title would be fun because the word "defense" reminds me of going to a basketball game or whatever. But, that's not what I mean this time.

I defend my thesis today!! Assuming that I pass, I will be practically done with school after today. WEIRD! It starts at 3, at which point I will give a presentation for about 20 minutes. Then people (mostly my committee) will ask questions. And then? Then my advisor and committee decide if I am a master of statistics.

I'll keep you posted.

Cache Symphony Orchestra Concert

            The members of the Cache Symphony Orchestra would like to invite you to our Fall Concert that will be held Sunday, November 14th at 7:30 pm in the Kent Concert Hall on the Utah State University campus.  There is no charge to attend. 
            Please notice that we have changed our name.  The orchestra has grown significantly in the last few years, and the old name, Cache Chamber Orchestra, no longer seemed to fit.  The group now consists of over 60 string players, and when wind players are added for the winter and spring concerts, our numbers grow to 85 or more.  We are now known as the Cache Symphony Orchestra.
            Dr. Robert Frost will direct the strings of the orchestra in pieces by Rutter, C.P.E. Bach, Corelli and Handel.  Featured will be an arrangement of the Shostakovich string quartet number 8.  This moving piece depicts the composer’s feelings about the horrors of war and will include a slide presentation.
            Plan also to attend our holiday concert on Thursday, December 9th at the Logan Tabernacle.
