It's been awhile since I've posted an actual update, though of course it's good to be on top of these things. This winter I've had the privilege of traveling to different parts of the country to audition for graduate programs in bassoon performance. It has been a wonderful experience going to places I have never been before, including Winston-Salem NC, Austin TX, and Ithaca NY.
Two more auditions left- one here at University of Oregon, and finally at Arizona State in Tempe, AZ. The traveling tour has been truly a unique experience, and has taught me a ton about what can be done with good planning, practice, and confidence.
I look forward to hearing the results sometime in the next couple months, and soon determining the next chapter of my life after graduating from UO this spring. Also in the works are job applications, summer music festival auditions, and senior recital preparations for spring term. Cheers! //Brian
