  1. Lauren,
    I believe you subbed with our quintet one time (Longfellow Brass Quintet, Roger Gomoll, etc.)
    I was just on the phone with Keith Hilson and asked him about my embouchure dystonia and he said to contact you. Please respond if you are interested in talking about this.

  2. Hi Lauren. Just curious if you had any background on Ann Giffels? I’m not performing her Sonata, but wanted to read about her and her solo. I couldn’t find anything online. Thanks.

    1. Hi Jay,

      I really don’t, and the teacher I worked on her Sonata with didn’t have much to go on either. Dr Natalie Mannix, at UNT, recorded the piece- if you haven’t already I might try reaching out to her. Best of luck!
