This is my first post on this blog despite having this website functional since 2012. So this will be a mini bio to get you caught up to date.
Back in December of 2017, I applied to the University of Oregon after eight years of consideration. It finally felt like the right time. In February 2018 I auditioned on bassoon, bass clarinet, and baritone saxophone for the faculty that teach those instruments. During that trip, I had been quite sick, including having distorted hearing. Despite these circumstances, I later found out I had been admitted as a Masters in Music Performance - Multiple Woodwinds student.
This has been a period of chaos and confusion, but I believe it will be for the best. Already, in the first three days in town, I have met many new people (I hope I remember them all, as I am bad with names), been invited to join a clarinet choir, and will be helping out with a local music shop.
School begins close to the end of September and I will be completely in the area in less than a week. Keep checking back to follow along with my Adventures in Doubling.
