Ok, I admit it, I WAS SKEPTICAL. C'mon, Google + YouTube and a "global" symphony picked by pros and regular Joe's?
It turned out to be one of the best groups I've played with, and I learned much more than I could have possibly hoped for during the course of three days.
I'm running now to teach & deal with a dead car, but will post updates and information over this coming weekend.
3 things: 1) The musical depth and talent of the participants was OUTstanding. Really impressive. 2) The quality of the program was truly impressive. I will never play Wagner the same again (Thank you Ian Bousfield!) 3) Be skeptical, but never be close minded. :)
Until we talk again- work hard, play hard, and be a good human!
See you soon!
P.S. Thank you so VERY much for your support- without your help, I would not have had this amazing experience!
