It's been a good month for me. I auditioned and have been accepted to the University of Oregon School of music. Apparently over 25 auditioned and only 7 undergrad and 3 grad students were selected. I made Mup 286 (the highest level the school will give transfer students). I'm looking forward to study with Brian Mc Whorter, he's a great trumpet player and person. This month I got hired to play in the local musical "Man of La Mancha". I also got hired to play the Torelli Sinfonia (G8) for easter sunday. It's been a fun 3 years back on the trumpet (3 years in June). I hope I'm not sounding like I'm bragging. I still have much to learn (a lot to learn). I feel lucky to get to play and it's been a lot of work. I'm also performing the Debutante' with the Lane Symphonic band in May. I hope everyone in the forum are enjoying themselves too. I still have plenty of frustrating days but I try to remember the joy of making music.
