welcome to my brand new blog! I have wanted to start one for over a year but I never felt I would have the time to post regularily. I still don't really have the necessary time, but I may as well get the ball rolling. I would like to use this blog to keep people updated on the specifics of my musical journey. For now, here is a short post about what I am currentely doing and planning on in the near future.
I auditioned for the Young Artist Gina Bachauer Compeition this month and I am getting 1 hour of new music learned and memorized for June if I get selected to compete. My current repertoire includes Mozart: Concerto No. 22, several etudes, Debussy: Suite Bergamasque, and Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring. Practicing is going well but I do find it challenging to balance time on all of those pieces.
I have recentely been building up my teaching studio. Currentely, I have 6 students, which is the most I have had at one time. I love teaching and the more I do it, the more interesting it gets. I plan to start up a monthly recital class for my students to perform for each other.
On April first, I will be performing the first movement of the Chopin e minor Concerto with the Oregon Symphony/Ballet Theater Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Niel DePonte. This performance is a result of winning the Van Buren Concerto Compeition in January. It will be the best orchestra I have gotten to play with thus far so I am really excited. Tickets are available here if you are interested. http:metroartsinc.org/yac.html It will also be broadcast worldwide on http:www.allclassical.org I hope you are able to see or hear it.
That's about it for now, thanks for reading. I hope to see you here next time.
