End of the Year!

The year is coming to a close and things should start picking up again. I've been lying low, practicing, auditioning, working, you know the drill.

I have two gigs coming up before the end of the year. Christmas Eve I return back to my hometown church, St. Ann's Catholic Church in Richmond Hill, GA. I haven't played midnight mass there in years, but this year I decided to come home for Christmas rather than pick up extra money to play. Last year I didn't play at all, I just wanted to hang out with my niece and nephews at the children's mass. It was nice just to relax...but I did miss playing.

The Friday after I have a gig playing a concert with a bunch of Eastman and Indiana alumni. Apparantly no Eastman flutists live in Atlanta. So the oboist in my woodwind quintet drafted me. Seems like its going to be a fun concert and I am looking foward to it. A really great way to finish out the year. I'm playing more in the concert setting, and its the best!

A look ahead to next year brings alot of playing as well, and hopefully duoATL can start really putting things together. After our concert in March we should have a lot of quality recordings to send out to potential venues.

As far as writing? I haven't done a lot this year. Almost nothing. So maybe I'll get back in the mood. Its time, I got a lot to say, and I need to start sayin it already.

Next Year: more writing, more playing, new website, new recordings....NO FEAR!!
