Well, UM (University of Miami) gave me a full-ride financial aid package (not counting loans), so I am going to UM. Also, I am in a fellowship that allows me to skip all general education classes and replace them with music classes. So, UM is paying me to go to college and study whatever I want. Sounds nice, huh?
Just went to their Wind Ensemble season closing concert last night. What a concert! If that group reads one of my compositions, I will be a happy man indeed!
I just composed a work for orchestra this weekend (Fri-Sat). I was inspired, and sat down to notate one theme, and it evolved into the whole piece, called Outbursts of Joy.
I have written a fanfare for brass that our school's brass section can't quite play, and an arrangement of Crown Him With Many Crowns for Easter. That's about all for the past several months.
I need to do more composing.
