Andrew in Nixon in China

No, the title isn't a dirty joke.

It's a reference me being called yesterday to play with the Kansas City Symphony / Lyric Opera of Kansas City's production of "Nixon in China", on assorted dates in March. 

A quick sequence that makes up the life of a music student.  When I was an undergrad, I saw a clip from a "Nixon in China" production.  Later, I studied the opera briefly in my modern music class.  A few years ago, I had the chance to see a production in St. Louis as part of the Opera Theater there.

And now I'm going to be playing it.  This is what happens if you're very lucky as a musician -- you move from wondering what something is, to studying it, to appreciating it, to playing it.
