Catch up time. Or making a first start on catching up. It’s been a busy year and getting busier, which is a feature, not a bug. I’m a big fan of doing stuff. Let’s pick up some of the action since the beginning of this calendar year. Second semester has a different flavor than first semester. Both semesters have as core activities horn lessons, horn seminar, and Iowa Brass Quintet. Fall semester adds my Creativity in Music class and my freshman seminar Weird Music, both near and dear to my heart. Fall is football season, go Hawks! Spring frees up all those Saturdays. Spring is horn choir, Improvisation for Classical Musicians, IBQ touring, and visits to other universities and conferences (workshops, presentations, performances).
