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...
Congratulations on your job!
It's good to hear from you again, and congratulations on winning your job!
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...
Welcome back, Jessica. I'm glad that your musical career has been going so well.
I also posted again today after about a year. Good luck with your New Year's resolutions!
