Autumn is the busiest time of year for teachers and, as it turns out, for many musicians as well.
Since September, I’ve been playing in rehearsals and/or performances almost weekly, ranging from jazz to wind ensemble. This will continue until Christmas, when my last official concert of 2017 with the Hudson Valley Saxophone Orchestra takes place on December 17th.
January is also looking to be busy, with the Navy Saxophone Symposium on January 12-13. After that things will slow down a bit, but they will inevitably pick up again in the spring for musical productions and the NASA Biennial Conference.
I’m lucky to be as busy as I am, because I know of many musicians who are not so fortunate. Time to get practicing!
