I am happy to announce that as of today I have completed my coursework towards the degree of Doctor of Arts at University of Northern Colorado. As my wife holds the position of Professor of Music at University of Wisconsin-Platteville, I will be returning to Wisconsin while I work on my dissertation.
Some great playing opportunities this month! I got to sub on percussion for the Greeley Chamber Orchestra's performance of Appalachian Spring, and played timpani on Rutter's Requiem at the First Congregational Church in Greeley. Also, this summer I will be returning to the pit at the Heartland Festival, this time to play percussion in Mary Poppins!
