Dude, where's my rambling?

January 9, 2009 at 8:42 AM

Hello there!  Apparently it's been 2.5 years since I last posted to this blog.  Time flies when you're having fu--I mean, practicing!  I've made a New Year's resolution to start posting again, so here goes.

An incredibly concise (for me, anyway) outline of the time as yet unaccounted for is as follows:

Summer 2006: Attended Schleswig-Holstein Orchestral Academy

Spring 2007: Graduated from CIM

Summer 2007: Attended Tanglewood Music Center

Fall 2007: Began graduate program at CIM

Summer 2008: Went back to Tanglewood Music Center

Fall 2008: Won a full-time job!

So here I am in Dayton!  We're mid-season already--had an enjoyable holiday break, but it's back to work from today through the end of May.  I won't go into too much detail for this update, but I will say that I'm quite happy here and it's a pleasure to be part of the Dayton Philharmonic.  My boss and my colleagues are warm and friendly, and likewise are our supporters and audiences.  I feel very lucky to be working and playing here, and I'm excited for the second half of my first season and next season as well!  And I hope that in reviving this blog, I'll be able to share some of my experiences with you--not just those at work, but about all things musical--and in doing so perhaps satisfy your curiosity if you're wondering how I've been and what I've been up to.  At the very least, I hope I can provide my colleagues some entertainment.

More to come...

Grats on the job! I would love to hear reports of your experiences as a new member of a professional orchestra.

I hope this means more of your quite expressive recordings will be forthcoming! Welcome back.

Thanks, guys!  Bill, I think unfortunately any recordings with the DPO are reserved for radio airplay only, but I'll check and see if there are any restrictions for my upcoming recital...
