Waiting. Patiently.

Exactly one week from tomorrow, my chamber group Out of Context will travel to Colorado and Montana to start our 11-day tour. This Thursday marks the oboe's official public debut (the first low-A will be performed as part of the Los Angeles City College chamber series!). 

I remember so vividly sending in my grant application last summer, with only the slightest hope that a positive response would be heading back to me in October. For as much as I want to be able to put things out of mind, I am forced to "wait patiently" like everyone else for those dreaded deadlines to arrive. Even when the good news arrived, it seemed there were so many more days to wait for; waiting for the instrument to arrive from Paris, waiting for music to be transcribed, waiting for rehearsals to begin, waiting for the oboe to be broken in, and countless more. But things are now in motion at last!

Here is a quick preview of the Out of Context public concert tour schedule. If you happen to be in the area, please come out and say hello!
