Update: WYWOP

No music to post this time. It has been uncomfortably long since I’ve released anything, but I have been keeping busy with various other tasks, including planning a trip to Austria for this year’s World Youth Wind Orchestra Project! You can find out more about WYWOP at this link: https://www.mideurope.at/en/members/wywop.

WYWOP is an international group of musicians under 30 that are selected by audition to perform really great literature in a wind ensemble. I have the unique opportunity to play both alto saxophone and piano for this adventure and I’m super excited about it! I have been practicing a lot in preparation for this and my flight leaves tomorrow. That means, unfortunately, there will still be a lack of postings here for at least another 2 weeks.

If you are between 16 and 30 and you’ve played in a symphonic band, I highly recommend trying out for WYWOP. It’s worth noting that this is not a paid event, it’s the opposite. In addition to the cost of the plane ticket, you also have to pay the event organizer to participate in this band, but it is definitely worth it for the experience and friends to be made along the way!
