My reflection on 2013...

        This past year for me has been great. I am truly appreciative of every opportunity I have been given. I had many musical firsts in 2013. I got to play several bassoon audition excerpts in an orchestral setting (Bolero, Alborada del Gracioso, Tchaikovsky Symphonies 4 and 5); I was afforded the opportunity to substituite with the Dearborn Symphony; I played for the first time symphonies of Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Schubert; I performed on the stage of Detroit Orchestra Hall; I took part in two new works for multiple bassoons with professionals from Michigan and Ohio...I could go on and on. The point being I have been blessed with many opportunities and I greatly look forward to what this next year holds.

        In 2014, I already know that I will be performing with the Perrysburg Symphony, playing in Orchestra Hall several more times, and that I will have a solo recital in March. I am sure that many more opportunities will arise and I eagerly await them.

        Thank you to all who support me and I'll be sure to keep everyone updated on what is going on!
