2019

I think it’s time for a new year with less posting and scrolling, more concerts and plays (watching, not working!), more practicing, shorter blog posts, and more happiness. ❤️

One Step Away From...

Sometimes it's a link to a news article, and sometimes it's an inspirational banner, but the message is the same: don't quit because your big break could be around the corner. ..they offend me so much that I've taken to the blog!

The Musicians of Now

We are the bulk of the people working in the industry, and I think we deserved to be celebrated in our own time, not after we embark on a path that redefines who we are.  We are directly in touch with our audiences and we have the power to shape the way people see classical music in a hands-on way, on a daily basis.  We're working, we're living, and sometimes we're freaking out: we're the Musicians of Now.  And we're awesome.

What To Do When There's Nothing To Do?

It's the dead of August, and I'm grateful for a productive summer.  Our family has drafted a new member, I've been lucky enough to play a couple of weeks and weekends at the two shows I get to sub on, and I even got to travel a bit with our new family!  Unfortunately, I'm finding myself staring down the barrel of an empty calendar for the next three months, a position that all freelancers inevitably find or have found themselves in around this time of year.  So what's a horn player to do?
