It has been an interesting past two weeks. All of my music gigs have been canceled indefinitely. I’ve been self quarantined in my cabin doing remote music classes/lessons with the Mountain Academy.
So far, the band has done a great job rehearsing for our spring concert. It was a hard, but necessary, decision to cancel our last March rehearsal. Now our Spring Concert on May 2nd has also been canceled. I’m working with the board to set up a later date so we can perform our Spring Concert music.
The best thing about being holed up in your home is the extra amount of practice time that is offered! Perhaps I will post more remote conducting videos for you to practice along with. I truly miss all of you and wish you the best of luck during these strange times. Please stay healthy! I hope to see you all again soon!
