Happy Martin Luther King Day!
Performances: Lots upcoming in January. As always I keep a calendar updated on this site.
Sunday, 1/24, 11-4 – BrassChix Annual Forum for women and girls who play brass instruments! I’m so excited to be a part of this again. I’ll be giving a trombone seminar in the morning and performing a movement of Red Dragonfly by Amy Mills in the afternoon.
Monday, 2/8 12pm- Hamline University Lunch Recital. More info to come! These are short, informal half-hour recitals and I am happy to be the featured artist for February.
Rehearsals: Working with my pianist, Rebecca, on the Mills for Sunday.
Practicing: So there’s a lot on my plate this month. On top of the above performances I am also preparing for my audition to enter doctoral study at the U in the fall. That audition is February 6th. Luckily, I can recycle much of the material from other gigs.
Listening: John Luther Adams, like, all of it.
Teaching: Short, quick notes to find the heart of your sound. Making the motion of the horn coming to your face, the inhalation, and the sound all a part of one unit, effortless.
Relaxing: Visits to Como Conservatory, walks, good long talks with friends.
