I know, right?! I haven't received one of these in a while!
Actually I didn't plan on applying to this competition until my friend Nate called me right after I finished my ballet class. He said he just submitted his conductor application, and that I should enter it also. I mean, wouldn't it be cool if both of us got selected to work as a conductor-composer team?
Unfortunately I didn't submit my most current orchestra piece because their orchestra only has double winds. Which makes me wonder—since I will be writing an orchestra piece soon (and if you are Mark Gibson reading this, I've totally started it! Really!), should I write for double winds (instead of triple winds) so more orchestras can play my piece?
