I was just offered a position playing with Cirque du Soleil, touring for 2 years, being paid $50-80,000 a year. I am 17 years old and want to become a professional classical musician in chamber music (if possible). I know that running off to join the circus isn't in my interest to acheive that goal (or even get through conservatory training during the regular time), but it also would be an incredible life experience. Helpfrom professional musicians with making this decision would be greatly appreciated!!
