Got on the Waiting List for the Aspen Music Festival?
This morning, I received notification that I have been placed on the waiting list for the Aspen Music Festival. Is this something to be proud/disappointed about? I'm unfamiliar with summer programs (as I'm Australian), and I wanted to know if getting on the waiting list is something commendable, or "disappointing".
Thanks in advance!
I think probably both...?
Ditto Dorian. Aspen is a high-level festival.
"Aspen is a high-level festival."
What Scott said is so true. When I went to Aspen, people described it as a "summer playground" for students of certain schools. A crazy story floated around about a guy who sent in an XXX tape for the audition because he knew his teacher also teaching at Aspen wouldn't bother to look at it. You get the idea.
I think being placed on the waiting list is a plus. There are some very, very high level students in Aspen, and if your playing had no merit in their opinion, they would say no.
