We’re a few weeks into term two of the music year. I can’t believe how fast term one went! There’s been lots of fun things happening in the studio this year. There was a mini-recital in October, our final concert at the end of November, and some great work by the students! Next week will be our last week of lessons before the Christmas break – I look forward to one last week of fun before we all go relax.
Outside of lessons, it’s been busy, too. I had a lot of fun playing with the Polyreeds, my clarinet duo. We performed in a few places this year, and have already broken out the Christmas music. We have a few gigs to look forward to this Christmas season. I’m particularly excited to tour the wards at Royal University Hospital. It was great fun last time! I kept busy with other ensembles as well, including the Reedy, Set, Go Clarinet Choir, who performed at the Festival of Trees. (We made the paper – you can see us preparing for our concert on the Star Phoenix’s website.) There were other musical adventures, and between them all, I had a fun start to the year.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
