I open up this evening to find a brand-new black and blue background and everyone talking about London competitions! :)

Anyways, this'll be quick, but I just wanted to say that I just received news the Urbana Pops Orchestra will be premiering an original composition of mine - the finale to "Birds of Prey", a piece I wrote throughout the summer and finished this specific section in September (2014). The revised score and parts will be due May 11th, so I have some cleaning up to do with orchestration and the playability of some passages, but it will be really cool because this is my first full orchestra live concert thing. I will hopefully be able to have a link to the recording somehow; the concert is June 13th that I will go and see. So yeah! It'll be exciting!
